Trail Coordinates / Points of Interest
Take in the Views
The hike though short, is very difficult, but worth
the reward of the views at the top. It is the
highest point that can be reached in Caineville,
so there is nothing to block the sight or the
surrounding area and mountains. Make sure to
notice the unique sights along the way.
Get a Closer Look
The trail goes up the face of the mesa
and circles around a point to the east and
then ascends the last level from the back
of the point. There are some tight spaces
to crawl through just before you reach the
top so be aware of those. It is a beautiful
interesting hike every step of the way.
Do it at Your Own Pace
There is another way onto this mesa on the back side of North
Caineville Mesa. To reach this part you will drive about 8 to 9 miles
on a dirt road but the ascent is less difficult.
