Overview

As the name suggests, this is another way to reach Dog Hollow Reservoir. Although that may not be your end goal, this trail is pretty exciting in its own way. From the start, you are treated with views over the western side of the San Rafael Swell. Once you start down into the wash, you will be treated with a few minor obstacles until you must exit the wash. Over the years this exit changes, so much so that previous users abandoned hopes of continuing on and returned the way they began. This has left the northern end of the trail almost invisible. For those people able to exit the wash, you can head north to other access trails for the Swell. If you are just looking for a little dirt, be sure to make it to the descent before the wash for the most scenic views!
