Trail Overview

The Scratch and Dent trailhead is on the entrance road to Calamity Canyon, about 1/4 mile from Rim Road. There is a small sign to the left at the bottom of the first small draw, indicating the start of the trail. The trail continues up the draw and is mostly smooth sand and a few small boulders. At about 1/3 mile it passes through a fence with a gate (please leave the gate as you found it). About 100 yards past the gate, the trail begins a rocky section that climbs up out of the draw. The rocky section continues for about 100 yards. When you get to the top, turn left and continue for about 1/4 mile to the Calamity Canyon entrance road. Turn right to return to Rim Road.
