"A day hike through a dramatic canyon and bighorn sheep area in the Toiyabe Range. This is an easy walk up a deep, narrow canyon. The rugged walls are ideal bighorn sheep country, and if you’re alert you may see a band running casually across impossible-looking terrain. The trail continues about 5 miles up the canyon before ending near the head of the drainage, but stopping after 2 miles keeps this an easy hike, if you prefer. It is possible for those skilled in cross-country hiking and map reading to continue beyond the end of the trail into the Arc Dome area."
