Park Hours: 7 a.m. to sunset. Trails may be closed for up to three days following rain.

Description

There is no "Canyon" on this trail. From the bottom, this trail turns left from Wood Canyon Trail. Once crossing Wood Creek the trail forks to the right and abruptly begins its ascent. This is a relentless climb with only a few rolling areas to catch your breath.
