Very beautiful canyon with great views of the Florida Mountains . The trail has some very nice cacti along the way. This canyon is not too difficult to hike.

This trail starts as a jeep road off Gap Road. Eventually it turns into just a hiking trail. The climb is moderate and has some very nice views along the way. Some of the cliff are quite impressive. Nice plants also can be seen. This is BLM property so BLM rules apply.
