Description

Starting at the Fire Canyon Trailhead take Unconformity to Anticline where you'll see Fire Canyon coming in on your left. This is the most direct route to get to the upper part of the trail system and is a great climb serving as a connector with Island in the Sky or to go down Unconformity. Another great option is to keep climbing Unconformity to Island in the Sky and then bomb down at the first intersection. Descending this trail is a blast as it weaves in and out of the wash.
