Granite Overhang

Trail Thoughts and Musings

The trail ascent now steepens and climbs over and around huge chunks of granite that have fallen from the canyon walls at the end of the valley. Very little vegetation can cling to life in this harsh environment. Here the trail has to duck underneath a large ledge of granite protruding from the side of the canyon. Hikers with very small children might not want to proceed any further but the trail is not otherwise dangerous.
