This route travels clockwise along the Halls Drainage to enter Lower Muley Canyon from the south. The twisting canyon is highly scenic, with deep undercuts, towering Navajo walls, low Wingate narrows, and welcoming forested benches. A difficult traverse along the Post Cutoff Trail completes the loop, bringing hikers back to their start at the Post.

A very good trail for a moderate backpacking trip. I went with one other person and we found a great spot to camp in one of the side canyons. we had the entire canyon to ourselves all Saturday, did not see anyone else. there was no water so our packs were fairly heavy, which made the initial climb from the post trailhead fairly strenuous, but easy going once in the canyon. very steep walls with huge alcoves formed by water cutting, super beautiful. No bugs, bring sunscreen. Do the route counterclockwise, the highlights are all within the canyon. Overall the trip is very manageable for more beginner backpackers such as ourselves. Highly recommend!
