Everyone loves the this 5 mile loop! Easy terrain with massive red rocks towering right next to you. Many opportunities for scrambling and even a ancient Hopi Indian ruin, awaits your exploration.....if...you can find it!!!
You can run it, bike it, or hike it !!

This is well marked and if you like to hike loops you can continue to Deadmans then continue on long Canyon. Makes for a good 5 mile hike and the views are spectacular!

This is an amazing trail . The views were amazing . U do hike along the ledge for a distance which makes this trail great . More bikers then hikers but not many of each . I highly recommend this trail -did it twice in 2 days .
