Cedar Ridge to Skeleton Point

Cedar Ridge to Skeleton Point Professional Review and Guide

"In this part of the Grand Canyon the Hermit and Supai formations generally form a single long slope between the near-vertical Coconino Sandstone and underlying Redwall Formation, broken only by short outcrops of sandstone. However, here they form the long narrow ridge that stretches from Cedar Ridge to Skeleton Point. Although this stretch of landscape is not horrifically steep, note from the elevation profile (see page 151) that the trail’s grade is nearly the same as when cutting through the near-vertical rock layers. The difference? Here there are no switchbacks."
