(Mid May) It starts at the entrance of the Falcon group camground. which is just north of Blue Jay campground. after crossing a small wooden bridge the trail splits. I stood to the left and it took me along oak trees and pleanty of shade. great canyon views and plenty of shrubs with lots of spring colors. It then came out adjacent to Blue Jay campground where i stopped and had a picnic breakfast on one of many picnic tables. I then walked on a paved road about a qurter mile and picked up the trail behind some campground restrooms. from there the trail just got prettier and prettier. green shrubs with Purple flowers contrasted beautifully with the rich brown clay dirt path dotted with rocks and in the distance great canyon views. after some distance the trail connects with the San Juan trail. I believe that if i had veered to the right soon after the wooden bridge that is the trail that would of led to upper falls (Upper Falls Trail) Im not certain though. overall I loved this trail and the spring scenery.

This trail has almost no level hiking, either all up or all down, but not that strenous, maybe a moderate climb. It follows a stream bed which is actually spring fed and has some water most of the year. Which is helpful by negaitng carrying water for the pooch. There is a small waterfall about 45 minutes down which provides a perfect place to have some lunch. Last spring I was lucky enough to stumble upon the mating ritual of several salamanders. AWSOME!
