Three Ponds Professional Review and Guide
"Start out over the slickrock on a well-marked, rock-lined trail. The Three Ponds Trail works its way up and down a few small rocky ridges. The hiking is easy and the trail wide. The trail stays in the wash the entire way; avoid shortcutting across the benches. In dry periods, hiking the wash bottom gets more difficult in the deep, loose sand.
Near the upper end, the wash narrows somewhat, and slickrock walls move closer to frame the canyon. The trail ends at a large pool at the base of a notch through a 50-foot wide sandstone fin. Above the large pool, sunken in the bottom of the slickrock slot, lie two deep potholes; hence, the name Three Ponds. In warm, sunny weather you can cool off by wading into the bottom pool."
