“A fine example of desert singletrack that doesn't waste any time getting to the scenic sections.”— Andrew Walters
Stay right to reach the spectacular section along the edge of the canyon's rim. After a couple of miles on the edge you'll reach a junction heading uphill to the right for horses, stay to the left along the canyon edge until you reach the next junction which should have signs showing the Rattlesnake Canyon Arches Trail - R1 heading off to the left.
Go right to stay on the P1 - Pollock Bench Trail. After the short steep climb out, stay left at the next junction to avoid the horse cut-off that goes back to the rim, and then enjoy the smooth trail as it winds across the mesa top through grasses and cacti. Back at the first junction of the day stay left to head back to the parking lot. A classic desert loop!
