Cliffs-Connector Trails

A challenging adventure

IMG_2174 (2)Hiking Trail

A trail not for the “faint of heart”.  Ties Ton’s Canyon & Squaw Trails together.

Directions to Trailhead
The Cliffs Trail is accessed by hiking about
1 mile up the Tom’s Canyon Trail, to the
Cliffs Trail Kiosk. See the Tom’s Canyon Brochure to find that trailhead.

Description of Trail
These two primitive trails connect Tom’s Canyon with Squaw Trail. Cliffs Trail is a steep, rugged climb of about 800 ft. and requires scrambling (climbs of 2 to 5 ft) and route-finding skills. The Cliffs Trail offers excellent views of Toms Canyon and passes many interesting rock formations, including a “heart-shaped rock”.

The Connector Trail is on top of the mesa, sandy but not flat. At the top of Cliffs Trail walk westerly near the cliffs to find trail markers for the Connector Trail. On the connector trail you will use a portion of two ATV trails.
