Cyclone Canyon Trail follows one of the Grabens area and is reached via the Confluence overlook trail starting at the Big Spring Trailhead or by 4 wheel vehicle if you wish to shorten the hike. A graben is a valley with a distinct escarpment on each side caused by the displacement of a block of land downward. Graben often occur side-by-side with horsts. Horst and graben structures indicate tensional forces and crustal stretching. Once you are on the this trail it is very level and easy. It's a lesser traveled trail if you want solitude and has no water nearby.

Once you leave the Confluence Trail at the Cyclone Canyon trail junction you are in a different environment that other areas of Canyonlands. The trail is in a Graben. The trail is almost totally level from beginning to end.
