Features -none-

Family Friendly This provides an unchallenging loop to explore the area, especially if camping nearby.

Access to the Wild Rivers Recreation Area is $3/day per vehicle, or included with an America the Great Annual Pass

Description

This 5.5-mile casual loop connects the several campgrounds with the Visitor Center. The gravel path is about five feet wide. Minimal elevation changes and a smooth tread make this easy in either direction.

From the visitor center, the loop provides access to the Pescado Trail. As it works around, it accesses several hiking-only trails that drop down into the gorge (some with petroglyphs at the bottom).
