own array of white stone. It is unique
though, because of the mixture of Red
Rock and the Navajo Sandstone. This
mixture of red and white creates a
beautiful view for any traveler.

The cottonwood trees that line the creek
bed will provide a beautiful accent to the
meandering trail and white sandstone
formations. Along the way you will have
opportunities to leave the trail and ascend

creek. These elevated areas will provide
long views in all directions.

There are ample opportunities to venture into alcoves,
slot canyons, or narrow side canyons.
