Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"On paper this ride doesn’t look too taxing. It’s less than a dozen miles and can be knocked out in under an hour if you have some spring in your legs. But the Sunshine Canyon climb should not be taken lightly, especially on hot days."

What’s stopping you—Sunshine is ready. Need to sweat out last night’s overindulgence before breakfast? Sunshine Canyon will get the nasty out . . . and fast." Read more
