Description

This is probably the funnest and most scenic trail in the Canyonlands Trails. This is a great trail to combine with the Rim Trail, High Trail, and Trophy Trail to make a quick tour of the whole Canyonlands Trail System. This trail and its connectors are great for more advanced hikers looking to get some nice trail time in.
