I can’t believe there’s only one review of this great trail in TripAdvisor! This trail starts about 100 m south from the Lipan Point parking lot and goes down to the river. You can leave your car at Lipan Point. I walked about halfway down...More

This trail drops from Lipan Point down to the river. It is very difficult as it drops 5,000 feet and is poorly , or in most cases, not marked. If you get off the trail it is extremely easy to get lost and end up...More
