Nice trip not difficult and easy to run all way long
Start going up with a gradual rise from very beginning
Mostly wash with medium stones a pain in the butt to walk on. The mountain views were awesome but you had to watch your feet all the time because of the rocks.
Rough walk on medium-sized rocks, but beautiful scenery and geological formations. We took a side trail to a tall summit to get a fabulous view.
Great trail. It was fun and links to three other trails.
Mostly interesting due to the fragmented sandstone along the fault and great views of the canyon. Easy walk.
Just Hiked this trail, Up hill most of the way, But well worth the Views...
This is a moderate difficulty hike that leads you to some impressive and interesting views of both the fault and the surrounding area. An initial gain in elevation from the White Rock Parking Lot takes you around a ridge and into the fault. Exploration is fun here and involves a bit of scrambling along the fault line.
