Traverse trail is often ridden in either direction. This route makes a big loop to connect to Water Canyon trail for the descent (meaning you would climb Traverse). The climbs are fairly technical and can be loose.

 The section of the traverse trail that climbs out Canon de Valle on the south side is also known as Reverse Traverse.
