Wear pants or high socks, you will be scraped up if you don't!

The "real trail" is tough to find. Go through the Fillmore Trail gate with all the barbed wire. Continue to check your location as a reference to how far you are from the trail. It is a NARROW, small trail (probably how it earned its name). Stay alert the whole time, it's easy to lose track of where this trail goes. You will be climbing rocks occasionally and going through tight terrain (like under low trees, etc)

It took us 3.5 hours at a moderate pace to go out and back, with a 15-minute break at the "finish." Just remember to keep checking your GPS on AllTrails app to ensure you're still on the trail and didn't veer off to a more remote trail.

It's already an obscure trail, essentially a series of mini paths that lead through a Canyon.
