Lizard Tail runs from Sunrise to Sunset Point. It is the only black on the mountain so don’t be fooled by the rollable ribbon heading south from Sunset Point. About a mile and a half in the trail kicks it up a notch in exposure and technicality. A wet weather waterfall sprouts over the trail near the southern termination into the Shared Rim Trail.

Access Info

Access from Sunset or Sunrise Points.
