Description

This trail connects you to the upper two loops of Deer Creek Canyon Park: Red Mesa and Plymouth Mountain. It's a steep 2.3 mile climb consisting of many waterbars, roots, and rock obstacles. About halfway up you'll encounter "The Wall", an eroded series of steep rock obstacles worthy of its name.
