This short trail runs around the edge of the Bartlett Wash valley and then into one of the fingers of Hidden Canyon. There are several spur trails leading from it that go to viewpoints over the canyons, and there are fantastic views from the trail itself, especially along the northern end. Special Attractions: Panoramic views over The Needles and the Book Cliffs; Views down into Bartlett Wash; Short, moderate trail with many viewpoints. High-clearance 4WDs are recommended, though most stock SUVs are acceptable. Expect a rough road surface with rocks larger than 6 inches, but there will be a reasonable driving line available. Patches of mud are possible but can be readily negotiated; sand may be deep and require lower tire pressures. There may be stream crossings up to 12 inches deep, substantial sections of single-lane shelf road, moderate grades, and sections of moderately loose road surface.
