Description

A fun descent when used as part of Turkey Springs Outer Loop. The trail generally follows canyons with some long, gently curving sections combined with shorter, more curvy sections toward its east end. The trail makes a rapid exit from the canyon when the canyon begins to steepen, taking advantage of the more relaxed grades of the mesa typical of the overall Turkey Springs Outer Loop.
