This route utilizes a trail that was built primarily for climbing so give the uphill traffic the right of way

This route is the easiest way down Post Canyon from Binns Hill Staging area. Highly recommended for beginners and kids. This route utilizes the newly built El Dorado Trail (primarily a climbing trail so be courteous to those coming up) and takes you to Family Man Staging area where you can play around before descending down 7 Streams trail and back to the shop.
