Camp, Hike, and Horseback

The first 250 feet of this trail are on private property with access provided by Kayenta. The trail is actually the northern portion of Dry Wash. Sand and boulders litter the wash making hiking challenging. At about 1.8 miles the wash turns to the right into Hellhole Canyon (on the left is the route for Hellhole Spur Trail). At this split in the wash the Red Mountain Wilderness begins.

Be courteous, informed, and prepared. Read trailhead guidelines, stay on the trail, and don't feed the wildlife.
