Trail Description : Waldron Trail

Mileages are as follows (one-way):

Elevations: Campsite availability:

From the top the trail follows a gently sloping drainage for about ½ mile. After it crosses this drainage, near Horsethief Tank, the trail descends on short steep rocky switchbacks through the Torweap and Coconino formations. The trail gently descends through the Hermit Shale connecting up with the Hermit Trail in the Hermit Basin.


Use caution while descending the switchbacks, due to loose rock. A high clearance vehicle is recommended to access the trailhead.
