We really enjoyed this short, one mile easy walking trail. Walking through a narrow box canyon, you will end at a cliff with a rounded half chute like formation that was cut into the cliff by rainwater. This run off channel descends vertically to the canyon floor. During the rainy season this dry chute turns into a waterfall as the water from above pours over it. While in the canyon we heard a very loud high pitched chirping noise that went over and over again, after scanning the canyon walls we saw a rock squirrel that wasn’t happy with our presence at all.
Directions: As you drive the Ross Maxwell Scenic Road, look for a sign at mile 11 that marks the paved Burro Messa spur road. The parking area is at the end of the road.
