Trail Overview

This southern section of the Overlook trail is more difficult than the northern section, with several loose rocky climbs and descents, more challenging rock ledges to get over, and an overall rockier surface. It departs from the canyon rim from the northern section and dips down into a valley that requires a steep, loose descent and tricky ascent back up to the neighboring canyon rim. The views are spectacular of the surrounding red canyons and river valleys. The southern end of this trail connects to other dirt bike single-track trails Arch Loop and Westwater Mesa Trail.
