Description of Trail
Get a view of Kanab, Kanab Creek, the Vermilion Cliffs, and sights well into Arizona. The trail is easy for the first half mile, and then becomes more challenging as the trail steepens, with a rise of over 800ft. Near the top of the trail there is a small panel of Petroglyphs.
Once on top you can see forever.
Pack it in, pack it out!
