The trail goes up into the broad mouth of this soon-to-become impassable gorge. The trail side is big sagebrush with cottonwood trees and wildflowers in June. Houlihan Creek itself flows down a wash with steep sides, evidence of the flash floods that roar down from its bare rock headwaters. If the weather is not hot and you had a late start, this place has very pretty afternoon views toward Carter Mountain to the east. Highlights: Spectacular views; wildlife.
