“An awesome trail into Monument Canyon with stunning views.”
— Tom Wolfe
Views · Wildlife
The trail starts at the fence for the east entrance to Monument Canyon. Begin to climb and follow the trail as it climbs steadily for around a mile with variations of rock, technical spots and packed trail.
There are several cliffs rising above the trail on your right as you ascend to the spire. There are trail markers when you get to the split between the trail and Wedding Canyon Trail
. Continue on to the left and there are rollers for the next few miles as the trail will twist and turns working its way around smaller little canyons working its way up to Rimrock Dr. I recommend turning around unless you want more mileage or someone is picking you up at the top.
Flora & Fauna
Lizards are everywhere, could see a jackrabbit and bighorn sheep. Deer can sometimes be seen early in the morning or late evening.
