San Rafael Desert 9255 is a short out-and-back trail overlooking the twisting San Rafael River. The trail is very short and has a looping U-turn at the end. There is room for several vehicles to park while enjoying views of the colorful terrain. The trail's small sandstone ledges require high clearance. Please don't try this trail in the rain. The soil at the end is very soft. Please do not camp at the trail end. It's meant to be enjoyed by everyone and can be intrusive. Abundant camping is found along Lower San Rafael Road and many other nearby trails.
