Runner Notes

This section is a pretty doable run once you have climbed the ridge up from the parking area at north end of trail

Description

T.68 continues up the canyon threading through picturesque semi-desert terrain and vegetation including prickly pear, cholla, juniper, algerita, and cottonwood. The path is occasionally vague and generally stays away from the thick vegetation paralleling Sitting Bull Creek. Be prepared to do some wading and/or rock hopping since the trail fords the creek three times, and some wet areas spread to 30 feet wide.
