Trail shared by Tomsen Reed

A part of a great trail system over lots of slickrock with great views and fun terrain.

Features Views

The dirt road to the trailhead can be muddy and rutted and hard to traverse when wet.

Runner Notes

The footing is usually really great on this trail, with grippy slickrock and dirt surfaces, but there are some locations where there are some easy dropoffs and some slightly technical portions.

Description

This trail starts out on a mesa just above Dalton Wash, and immediately sets out on some slickrock where the route is mostly delineated by cairns and baskets full of rocks. These markers are pretty frequently placed, so it isn't too hard to stick to the route, and if you can't see a cairn, there are usually mountain bike tracks in the little dirt portions between the slickrock sections.

At around 1 mile into the trail, the trail gets close enough to the edge of the mesa to allow great views into Dalton Wash, which can be really green and lush in the spring. This section, up until about 1.3 miles in is in a sparse forest of short shrubs and trees, but then the trail opens up and you start to get some amazing views of Cougar Mountain and some of the surrounding peaks to the northeast.

The trail continues in the open (it can get pretty hot and exposed during the summer) like this until it connects with the Guacamole Trail.
