Trail Overview

This 1.8-mile track takes you from Highway 89 out to the canyon overlooking the Colorado River via a rocky powerline road. It starts out with slab rock on hardpacked sand and dirt underneath powerlines. It's flat and straight in the beginning, going over bumpy layers of slick rock. The slick rock creates ledges that are below a foot tall but add a challenge and need high clearance. The track has lots of unmarked intersections and ends at an incredible viewpoint over the Colorado River just north of Horseshoe Bend. It's an adventurous way to see the river without having to pay at Horseshoe Bend and deal with the tourists and crowds.
