Description [Suggest Changes]

To start this trail, look for the trailhead located between Campsites 10 and 12 in Cottonwood Creek Campground. While the mileage on the trail markers seems short by two tenths of a mile, this is still a great trail for families with kids 4 and up.

Along the way, a few moderate rocky obstacles will test your footing, but the view from the top is more than worth it. Enjoy a fantastic canyon landscape draped in dense restored forests.
