Trailhead Directions: From the "Y" (the intersection of State Route 179 and State Route 89A), go north on SR 89A about 1/4 mile to Jordan Road. Turn left on Jordan Road and drive to the end. Turn left and proceed to the cul de sac and continue straight on the dirt road. You'll come to the parking lot after another 1/2 mile.

The views begin about 0.6 miles in to the hike. We ususlly stop after about 2 1/2 miles for a nice view of the Midgley Bridge, although you'll be facing the sun as you try to take a photo. If you continue on, you'll intersect the Wilson Canyon Trail after about a total of 3 miles.
