“Tight turns, rocks and stairs.”— Jeff Combs
At 0.5-miles, a side trail provides access to a residential park on Rock Lane, a short distance from Gail Gardner.
At just under one mile, the trail takes a westerly course for a short distance from and overlooking commercial areas adjacent to Iron Springs Road. The trail then crosses a small wooden bridge before heading in a more southwesterly direction. Just prior to crossing Kile St. (dirt road) there is an access trail to vehicle parking on the lower section of Kile St.
From here, the trail is on an easement within Enchanted Canyon residential development (formerly Dalke property). In steep terrain, it takes a course below and parallel to Rockwood Dr. before diving into a densely wooded canyon thicket. This is a dramatic piece of the landscape with three canyon crossings before reaching the petroglyph site adjacent to Ridgewood Dr. Just before reaching this site the trail splits into two short segments circling the petroglyph rock.
