Canyon Trail

This 8.34 mile round trip route (9.76 miles from the parking lot) descends gradually from the higher, cooler Mojave Desert habitat down the canyon to the warmer Colorado Desert climate and then returns via the same route. This trail is a favorite of many local hikers and horseback riders. Much of the trail follows a willow-lined stream, and while staying on the canyon floor, hikers gaze at the steep-sided and sometimes towering canyon walls. This trail is subject to the desert heat and can be extremely strenuous on the return trip. Carry plenty of water and allow sufficient time for the return trip.
