Whitford Canyon is a delightfully scenic rhyolite canyon comprising a variety of pleasing hues in the canyon walls and seasonal water with lush green grass and a multitude of flowers in the spring. We will "lollygag" on our way to an old jail at the end of the trail where we will have a snack and then return via the same route. High clearance vehicles are required to access the trailhead. *Please call the leader no later than Thursday, March 7th to coordinate vehicles and occupants. Hike will be canceled in the event of rain.* Bring water, sunscreen, and snacks. Cost to non-members is $5.
