Description

This newer trail connects the upper and lower parking lots, connecting the Overlook Loop and Canyon Rim Trail with the bottom of Dream Weaver/The Maze/Darkside of the Moon.

Although not technical in nature, as an uphill it is a bit of a grind. As a downhill, it's a hoot, with lots of rollers and smaller jumps.

Expect nice views to the west. This trail faces north, so ice might form during the winter season.
