The first and last third of this trail is also the Nature Trail. In the middle Satch Cowan parallels the Nature trail but is closer to the canyon edge. This trail is very technical and has some cliff edge exposure. It makes for an extra technical option after coming down most of Quemazon. Most of the trail is Volcanic Tuff and is a lot like slick rock.

 This is a great fun little trail. Basically a little trials course break in the middle of the high speed Quemason rollers.
