Trail shared by Robert Walker

A lovely trail that goes along the rim of a "canyon" in Don Robinson State Park.

Features River/Creek

Description

This trail is paved for about a half mile before it becomes singletrack dirt. The trail descends to the LaBarque Creek floor then climbs up to the rim of the "canyon." There is a lovely view from here of sandstone rock formations and bluffs. Near the end of the rim, one can make a left and take a side trail to explore the canyon further. The trail continues to the steepest climb the slowly gains elevation with the occasional rolling hills until it spits out close to the singletrack entry point.
