This hike takes you into an easily accessible canyon in the new Black Ridge Canyons Wilderness area. The trail first crosses open high desert country of rabbitbrush, junipers, and other thorny plants. It then makes a loop in Devils Canyon below huge walls of Wingate sandstone and interesting rock formations. Part of the loop follows the creek bottom and should be avoided during thunderstorms. Hiking beneath immense sandstone cliffs and past amphitheaters in a colorful canyon is a real treat! Keep an eye out for desert bighorn sheep and rattlesnakes.
