“This arterial trail connects to the best of Lost Dog's hillside and ridgeline hikes.”— Brendan Ross
From the west, Baby Head departs the Espina and Broke Back hills along an arroyo. The climb is gradual and easy for the first half mile. As the trail leaves the arroyo and turns northeast bound, it passes the exit for Little Moab. From this point on, Baby Head transits open spaces, passing through ocotillos and cacti. A faintly marked connection to Broke Back splits off to the west. Refer to the map for helping finding this route, as it is not depicted on satellite views.
The trail continues to meander up the foothills for a half mile before intersecting with Lechugilla Trail and finally Grim Road, its northern end point.
