The trail is a little less than one mile long. The south end starts at the Long Canyon paved road and the north end intersects with the Deadmans Pass trail.
Long Canyon is pretty much an entry level intermediate trail and only has a couple technical spots that could be a challenge for intermediate level riders.

I suggest that the trail be ridden from south to north. You can park at the Long Canyon parking lot which is at the south end of the trail.
