The Edge Loop is actually an extremely long trail, but we're just showing part of it here because it is very commonly used to finish Chutes & Ladders Loop or Vegetarian Loop.

The trail is fast and smooth with no major climbs and little to slow you down. There are a couple small hills and several short and steep wash crossings, so keep your head up!
