This route leads in a half mile loop over Cedar Mesa sandstone. The main attraction of this route is the many potholes in the sandstone that teem with wildlife after heavy rainfall. A brochure depicting the small creatures that live in the potholes is available at the trailhead. This trail provides expansive views southward toward the needles.
