This short route begins at the Hole-in-the-Wall Picnic Area and descends through Banshee Canyon. The route is made up of a series of climbs on iron rings drilled into the canyon walls. Visitors can climb down into Banshee Canyon then join the Hole-in-the-Wall/Mid Hills Trail at its mouth. The descent leads through some unusual volcanic features and is navigable by most individuals. After descending into the canyon hikers will wander through it for a short distance to join the Hole-in-the-Wall Trail.
