Description

This out-and-back trail starts with a steep descent and levels out as it follows the creek toward the window cliffs. Expect eight or nine creek crossings each way in and out. At the end is an awesome rock formation with steep drop-offs on both sides of the turn-around point. Remember that steep descent to start? This is your last challenge out to return to the trailhead.

18 water crossings and levels were high and torrid due to the rain we’ve been having. Totally worth the adventure and views! 5.5mi
