Wilson CanyonThis trail is mainly level and unusually shady, making it the perfect hike for hot weather. At the very end the trail climbs above tree level onto a small exposed hill, giving you 360 degree views of the canyon walls. There is also a detour that lets you see Steamboat Rock close-up.
This ambiguous sign near the beginning indicates a fork in the trail.
The right fork is the "real" trail; left is a rough trail with seasonal waterfalls.
Detour: Jim Thompson Trail
The Jim Thompson Trail branches off of the main trail about a quarter of the way into the canyon. It takes you to the base of Steamboat Rock and provides views of the canyon walls along the way.
