“A beautiful hike in Monument Canyon and Wedding Canyon.”— Tom Wolfe
Continue on to the left over rolling terrain for the next few miles. The trail will twist and turn, working its way around smaller canyons. At about 3.5 miles in, you'll have seen some of the cooler rock formations there are to see, so this is a good place to turn around and head back to the intersection with Wedding Canyon Trail.
The first 0.5 miles features a nice little descent before getting into the very steep stuff for about another mile. This section of trail features some technical and sketchy areas with loose scree or dirt. The trail begins to undulate again as it continues down to the canyon floor and then winds its way out. The rest of the route features rollers and a few small technical spots to climb out and merge back with the Monument Canyon Trail and the parking lot.
