A nice flowing loop that climbs up onto the mesa and down into the canyon.

Taber West

Description

This trail begins at the Boggy Draw Loop trailhead parking lot. Head north under the power line and pass the first fork on the left, this is the return of the trail you are riding. A half a mile further there will be another left that starts the climb onto the mesa. The trail climbs along a fence, then heads left down a small draw. At the bottom of this draw you'll cross a forest road and climb a switchback up the mesa.

At the top of this climb cross a paved road, and the trail winds back and forth until you reach an overlook with amazing views. Follow the rim from here, then drop down the edge steeply into the canyon. The trail gets fast here and you'll pass several ponds until you reach the bottom of the canyon. The trail turns left and climbs up the bottom of the canyon until you reach a pond at the top. From here, the trail goes right and crosses the paved road again on your way back to the trail you came in on. At this point you'll turn right and cross under the power line on your way back to the parking lot.
