Description

This trail can be accessed from Monolith Gardens using the Foothills Rim Trail connector. It is the northwestern most piece of trail in the system. This very technical trail has a gentle meadow like entrance.

As you follow the base of the butte, it quickly narrows a becomes exposed. This exposure treats you with a couple rock stalls, followed by two tight switchbacks half a mile into the trail. At this point, Tech Ridge widens into a gentle climb. There is a short loop at the end with a great view across the desert floor.
