Douglas Creek Canyon–South Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"The drive up glorious Moses Coulee alone is worth the trip to this area, even if you never leave your vehicle. If you do decide to stretch your legs, the payoff is all the more fantastic: desert prairies, steep canyons, crashing waterfalls, fields of flowers, aerial antics of birds large and small, and more pure natural splendor than you’d expect from a desert canyon.
The trail follows the creek upstream from the trailhead. Though this is desert country, the rich riparian habitat around the creek supports some decidedly nondesert species. Most notably, a thriving population of belted kingfishers is found here. Indeed, the creek provides a long oasis through the heart of the canyon."
