Note:  You must have a vehicle with high clearance, preferably four-wheel drive, in order to get to this trail.

The trail is short, but nice.  There are beautiful rock formations on both sides of the trail.  The trail leads back into a canyon, then points the way up and over the rocky hill to Balanced Rock.  Sadly, I never found Balanced Rock...

On the backslide of this hill, the trail is not well-marked and seems to just dissolve.  I'm not sure why since all of the previous part of the trail is well-marked by cairns.

This is a short, but sweet hike.  If you can get to the trail, I recommend it.
