Trail Overview

Fault line is named for the outcropping it traverses along a fault line, made mostly of solid sandstone fins and just a bit of sand mixed in. This trail is typically finished out with West Rim Trail, but is a nice one to pair with many options here at Sand Hollow. It starts heading up a steep red clay climb before getting on the rock. There are several small ledges and climbs before coming to a boulder, you have to curve around a boulder off-camber followed by a descent about 40 ft off-camber.


It is a rated trail by locals. Mainly getting its difficulty from the unnerving off camber section I believe.
