Description

If hiking the trail as shown, this is a gradual downhill route that takes you in and out along a side canyon in the Devils Canyon area. Expect to hike on slickrock and sandy soils. The views are great into the canyon. This trail can be connected in various ways to other great trails in the area to make a loop of whatever length the hiker desires.

Flora & Fauna

Standard desert fare, with plentiful Utah Junipers and spring wildflowers. Evenings will bring out the coyote and rabbits. You'll see/hear lots of songbirds and ravens....and maybe even golden eagles. I've seen bighorn scat, but never the bighorn.
