Trail shared by Nick Wilder

A rolling trail over slickrock.

Features -none-

Description

The preferred direction is north to south - you'll be going more downhill in this direction.

This trail is nonstop bumps and small ledges on almost 100% slickrock.
You'll wind in and out and up and down a lot, and all the bumps can get tiring. Despite no major climbs, you're hardly ever hiking flat terrain.

It's marked very well, and the orange paint usually indicates the easiest line.

This is an easier black diamond trail suitable for most intermediates willing to dismount occasionally, and it's possible to bail out at many points and head down to Dino-Flow (much easier) or to Copper Ridge 4x4 (very easy).

You can make a great loop by starting at the south parking area,hiking up Dino-Flow and back on EKG.
