To date there are 7.4 miles of purpose built slick rock and natural surface trail. This is a unique, rugged region with large boulder formations which give the user a sense of seclusion. In a scenic canyon land, the rock-featured trail system is a technically challenging play area with many short, tight, twisty loops. Several times the trail surfaces from the rock canyons, giving brief panoramic views of the entire Valley and surrounding mountain ranges.
