We took the trail counterclockwise. Going down the rough canyon offers gorgeous views. You’ll have to climb over several boulders with quite some drops! Don’t expect your usual trail. We had our dogs, Border Terrier and Belgium Malinous. They did ok for the most part....More

A popular trail. Bring water. Fairly easy hiking and mountain biking. Don't take a dirt bike. At the junction of Hwy 141, you need to carry your bike a short way.
