A granite slot canyon and arroyo bed.

Features -none-

The slot canyon is typically icy and unsafe to hike down during January and February.

Description

The trail segment starts where a granite slot canyon (Box Canyon) appears on your right. Drop down the wash towards the slot canyon.

The slot canyon is a technical hike and down-climb approximately 100 yards long. It is easiest to navigate with at least one extra rider so that you can pass bikes off to one and other. This canyon also features sport climbing routes on the canyon walls.

At the mouth of the canyon, you'll enter the arroyo watershed. Proceed down the arroyo for approximately 1 mile. The first 1/4 mile is the most technical section, with large river rocks that change each rain. Channel your inner trials rider to hop around and over the rocks and pick a route down the trail. This is especially gratifying for fat bikes.

If the river forks, stay to the right (typically a rockier route) and watch for a sandy wash approaching at a 90-degree angle. The trail ends as you take the right fork and connect to a two-track. Watch for tire tracks to help identify the start of the two-track.
