Need to Know

To get to the most common start of this trail, you have to do a short but steep climb from First Dam on the BST: Green Canyon to Logan.

Runner Notes

Starts as a crushed gravel trail before fading to compacted dirt doubletrack.

Description

After climbing the short hill from First Dam, you'll turn right onto the Highline Trail. This will immediately start on a long, wide curve that follows part of the canyon for nearly a third of a mile. The trail will bend left and straighten out for around a half mile. Partway along this, you'll come to an intersection of trail where if you head downhill. It will connect you to the Canyon Gateway Trail, but going uphill leads to a dead end trail that has security cameras and is off-limits to the public.

At approximately 0.75 miles, you take a sharp left hand turn and shortly afterwards cross two very small streams (they aren't there in winter), both of which have rocks strewn across so it's easy to cross. The trail will meander through the woods before coming to a gate where the trail ends and it meets Highway 89. There is a small parking lot on the north side of the highway just a little ways after the official end of the trail.

Flora & Fauna

Deer have been seen just off trail at times in early spring. Snakes likes to rest on the trail in the summer since there's a lot of sun. Squirrels and other little critters common throughout the year. Mainly oak or juniper trees along the side of the trail.
