Less than a mile round-trip, the Rings Trail is named for the metal footholds secured in the rock for an easy climb and descent.

Parks and OutdoorsExpert Tips & Helpful Hints
  • Located adjacent to Hole-in-the-Wall Campground, the Rings Climb is an activity that is popular with children and adults alike. According to legend, Native Americans stole horses and then eluded 19th century ranchers by dropping down into Banshee Canyon and vanishing from sight. Steel rings are now mounted into the canyon's rock walls so you can follow in their footsteps.
  • The fun continues at the bottom of the Rings Climb. At the base of the rings is a cathedral-like wonderland of hole-pocketed boulders and cliffs. Hikers may want to connect to the eight-mile-long trail that links Hole-in-the-Wall and Mid Hills Campgrounds. A car shuttle makes this a great one-way hike. It's uphill in this direction, but downhill if you start at Mid Hills (1,400-foot change).
