Description

From the Boyton Canyon Trailhead, go south on this trail up and over little hills on red dirt. At some point, the fun is over and you have to climb up Doe Mountain. However, the grade reverses and you'll be presented with an interesting descent and some rocky sections as you continue down to the Aerie trailhead.
