The route uses Spur Cross and Metate Trails to make a loop. The trail surface ranges from smooth and level to rocky and uneven. Wear closed-toe shoes and bring snacks and plenty of water (none available at trailhead). Bring a camera and notebook to log your observations. This walk has two sessions: 8:30-10:30am and 11am-1pm. Please indicate your session preference when registering. Portable restrooms are available at the trailhead.
