Saddle Rock to Syncline Trail Map

This is a decently long hike that gives stunning views of Providence Canyon the entire way. It does not have a trail, but it is pretty hard to get lost. There is no water, and while technically this hike is dog friendly, once you get to Saddle Rock you will have to turn around, as the route is too exposed.


The way is dry the entire time, so make sure to bring extra water.



Hiking trails where obstacles such as rocks or roots are prevalent. Some obstacles can require care to step over or around. At times, the trail can be worn and eroded. The grade of the trail is generally quite steep, and can often lead to strenuous hiking.
