Overview

Description

The trail starts at the intersection of water canyon road and the actual canyon bottom. From here you drop down a double switchback and then follow the bottom of the canyon and creek all the way to the bottom. There are a couple of sections where you cross the creek, and you may have to get off for these after this years flooding. Once at the bottom, the trail climbs back up to the beginning of old water canyon road by the water tanks on highway 502.
