Trail Overview

This short out-and-back trail is a trendy camping spot. It will be particularly busy over the weekends. To check it out, either way, is entirely worth it. The trail offers outstanding views of the surrounding cliffs, and if you are not afraid of a short hike, some fantastic views of Marble and Badger Canyon and the Colorado River are below. Driving the trail is easy; it just has a few soft sandy sections. If you are in a longer rig, some rocky sections and tighter turns may be difficult. Some parts of the trail are only one vehicle wide, and oncoming traffic might need to reverse to let you pass. There are many wildflowers in the springtime and two decent bars of LTE Verizon cell service. This area is a dry desert, bring extra water with you.


There is some sand here and there. The rocky sections have tight turns, hindering larger vehicles. Oncoming traffic may have to reverse to let you by.
