This is a fun hike! The trail is fairly flat and easy, but not super well defined, so you get to do some climbing and ducking as you hike. Also, there is no obvious end to this hike, so we went probably an extra half mile before realizing we’d gone “too far.” We didn’t see any other hikers at all, so the isolation and immersion into nature on this trail was amazing. Great scenic views, obviously. :) I would love to hike this trail again after the snow melts and see some water in the springs.

Short trail that drops down a small canyon passing a granary. It ends on a ledge where there is a spring. Not much water coming out of the spring this time of year
