Rocky Canyon is a short but steep out and back trail that begins in a working quarry, and it's primarily used by mountain bikers and hikers. Parts of the trail are technical with steep inclines and chunky rocks. It's a fun workout for someone looking for a quick ride, or it can be extended to a lengthy ride by taking the trail on through to the small town of Creston. The views are pretty, and interesting wildlife such as bobcats and roadrunners have been seen on the trail.
