Easy hiking on an east-facing promontory leads to stunning panoramic views of the White Rim and Monument Basin.

Overview

Features: Views
Family Friendly: This is a flat trail that is easy for children, however caution should be used as there is no fencing on the edge of cliffs descending to the canyon floor.

Description

From the small parking area just past the picnic areas, descend over slickrock to a trail sign indicating the split off for the Gooseberry Trail. Continue east on a pleasant, flat path through the desert landscape. Follow cairns and obvious worn trail past large sandstone rocks as the promontory of land narrows towards the terminus, where you'll find spectacular views in every direction as well as some wonderful exposure.

Flora & Fauna

Typical high desert flora and the occasional lizard may be seen darting across your path.
