Distance: ~3.4 Miles
Difficulty: Easy, but rocky terrain in wash (lower trail), sandy terrain (upper trail)
Magnificent red mountain views, panoramic vistas, and the possibility of waterfalls await. After a recent rain or snow, if the timing is right, and you’re lucky, you just might sight one of the rare and wonderful waterfalls.
You can take the lower wash trail and navigate a continuous rock field or you can take the sandy upper trail above the wash. For variety, take 1 out and the other back. Once you’re on top of the ridge, stop and listen for the sound of water, look carefully and closely at the dark veins running down the red cliffs. Watch for movement and light reflecting.
Continue hiking to very back of the canyon for some bouldering and scrambling fun. Be safe!
Notes: Exposed hike, best enjoyed in Winter, Spring, Fall
