Trail Overview

This is a beautiful example of a wash that has been created by the severe thunderstorms that occur in the area. The pure power of the water is clearly visible in the walls that are along the trail. You will view mountains with the traditional colored layers and other outcroppings that show the majesty of the development process through erosion. This is not a trail to be on if there are any thunderstorms anywhere in the area as these washes get water from many sources.
