Outstanding views from top to bottom. A great short cut when returning to Moab from Dead Horse Point State Park or Canyonlands National Park. A wide gravel road except through Pucker Pass where it is narrow and steep. Except when damaged by heavy rain, or when wet, this road can often be driven in 2-wheel drive. Route-finding is easy. This trail is described downhill, assuming you are returning to Moab from Canyonlands National Park or Dead Horse Point State Park. The trail starts from Highway 313 at a point 1.6 miles east of the intersection where the road to Canyonlands National Park departs south from 313.

In the guide it speaks of doing this canyon downhill (from Dead Horse Point towards Moab) well I decided to go UP the canyon. The trail wasn't difficult at all; even going up pucker pass was rather easy. Pucker pass looked a little daunting as I came around the bend, but as I looked at it for a moment or two I saw that it was going to be rather easy also. Because I decided to do this trail in February, there was a little snow on the trail, but that only slightly added to the difficulty in one spot (sorry didn't get pics of that spot but it was right above Pucker pass) The trail offers wonderful views up the whole canyon and offered some wonderful picture opportunities. I rated this a 3 of 5 because of the views not the difficulty
