Runner Notes

Plenty of rocks and narrow sections provide interesting terrain. However, the entrance fee and potential for bottlenecks may make this a poor place to run.

Description

This rocky singletrack climbs beneath towering canyon walls as it switchbacks past numerous boulders and a collection of scattered shrubs and trees. Just before reaching the high point, it passes by a lovely alcove where a 60-foot seasonal waterfall washes down a weathered rock face.

A narrow benching and lots of rocks give the trail a nice wild feel without being overly taxing.
