Hero: D1230
small-sr Icon

Of the three spur trails leading to the overlooks of Shafer Canyon, D1230 is the easiest to reach and has a couple of primitive campsites to choose from. The trail leads out and back to a magnificent view of the canyons and rock spires below. The trail is a mix of dirt and rock with a couple of spots requiring flexy suspension and high ground clearance. Low-range gearing and durable tires help ensure safe travel to the overlook and camping area. The trail ends in the trees with a couple of rock fire rings dispersed around the area. Please help preserve the area and do not create new campsites. Wood gathering is prohibited, and you must remove all human waste from the area.
