Description

From the Sand Canyon Trail, the Quarry Pass Trail crosses the Mesa Trail, then descends to cross the Greenlee Trail. From there, the trail climbs steeply up and over an abandoned quarry on one of the park's largest rock formations. The trail even goes down a miner's staircase. The trail ends at Red Rock Canyon Trail.
