Trail Information

Highlights

If the lower part of Sledge Hammer wasn't enough, don't worry. 3rd Canyon is a continuation of Sledge Hammer that can give you a little more fun before heading down the mountain. This exciting little trail is a blast if you still have more time in the day. The only downside, if you want to call it that, is you have to run Sledgehammer first. If you are in Johnson Valley California and want a little more fun after you just got done running Sledgehammer, check out 3rd Canyon.
