Description

An entertaining climb/descent with great views of the South Cañon area and the Grape Creek Valley. This one connects Temple Canyon Road (via BLM 6181) and Hard Time. The higher end on the north-facing slope will keep snow longer than most trails in the area - consider riding from the bottom up to the mid-point saddle when there is snow.
