Trail Overview

This section of the trail continues the decent into the canyon and to the East fork of the Virgin River. The trail ends with a couple of options. You can proceed straight down to the river area on a slightly easier trail or take the trail as marked here to have some slick rock fun. The slick rock is a fun decent to a flattish area. From here you can walk down on the rock to a shelf to find a Spanish Conquistador sword carved into the rock. Continue descending toward the rock wall ahead of you to a spectacular wall of petroglyphs. PLEASE do not add to the ancient drawings. You can also go down to the river and rest your tootsies in the cool, clear water. Take some time in the area and enjoy the beauty that surrounds you. To the north is the back side of Zion.
