Description

Taking this trail will reward you with an amazing hike in an amazing location.

Starting at the Ponderosa campground, you will begin descend the canyon on a ever steppening trail.

During the spring and summer there are many wildflowers and the river will most likely be flowing.

Like any other Los Alamos trail it can be linked with many others to extend your journey into the wilderness.

Because it is further out of town and less people travel on it, it is advised you bring a friend to share the adventure.

There are bathrooms at the campground but they are not always open.
