Mostly intermediate trail from the top of Cobal Canyon back to the rest area. Possibly the most challenging of the Marshal Canyon "official" trails. This is a fairly steep descent but nothing unmanageable. What makes this trail tricky is some rutting in the middle combined with a tight and steep switchback at the lower end.
