Trail shared by Jason Wheat

A connector trail from Sitting Bull Falls to Queen Hwy.

Description

T.68 continues up the canyon threading through picturesque semi-desert terrain and vegetation including prickly pear, cholla, juniper, algerita, and cottonwood. The path is occasionally vague and generally stays away from the thick vegetation paralleling Sitting Bull Creek. Be prepared to do some wading and/or rock hopping since the trail fords the creek three times, and some wet areas spread to 30 feet wide.
