Hero: Little Wedge Road
small-sr Icon
Often, people search for places similar to more popular or more prominent destinations but on a smaller scale or lesser-known to avoid the crowds. While the Grand Canyon is well known, the Wedge is a smaller, and far less visited replica. And just around the corner from the Wedge Overlook is the Little Wedge. This incredible precursor to the main attraction is well worth the visit if avoiding the crowds is one of your main concerns. One thing that the Little Wedge can offer that the Wedge Overlook cannot is spectacular hiking right off of the trail. The Sids Mountain Wilderness Study Area is along its eastern edge, marked by a wooden fence line. Scattered along the trail, you will see breaks in the fence and a footpath leading off into the distance below, likely leading to some scenic or photographic spot along the North Salt Wash or many other washes feeding the San Rafael River in times of heavy rain. Gear up and escape the masses along Little Wedge Road!
