Description

LaSalle Canyon is a magnificent canyon that's especially popular with photographers.

From the east, follow narrow singletrack to the top of the canyon, where an ample waterfall spills into a large basin during most of the year. As an added treat, the trail winds behind the falls before continuing west past the Interior Canyon Trail - Tonty Canyon to connect back with the River Trail.
