At mile 12.9, you'll pass a spring and galvanized stock tank and begins a steepish drop into Rough Canyon. Cross the dry creek bed at mile 15. At this point, the route begins a long climb along a sandstone bench.
The trail reaches the Little Park Road at mile 17.3. Turn right onto the paved Little Park Rd.
