Meet at 7:30 (depart at 7:45) at the Burger King on Power Road just south of Highway 60. 

This trail follows ATV and rugged jeep roads through a beautiful and narrow canyon with lichen-covered cliffs.  In places the canyon narrows to 15 feet.  Eventually, the route climbs to a higher ridge with views of Martinez and Box Canyons. ATV traffic should be minimal on a weekday. 

High-clearance vehicles are needed to access the trailhead.
