Loose Canyon Trail

Overview

Loose Canyon Trail is located at the bottom of the enchanting Loose Canyon, it follows the canyon floor, dances through red hoodoos and thousands of colored sandstone cliffs to catch the air of higher elevations of the Red Canyon area.

This quick 5-km point-to-point is rated as intermediate and is best used from April to October. Not only biking but hiking and birding are popular on the trail. Your dog buddy can also join your trip here.

Beautiful flowers along the way is an interesting part of this scenic singletrack.

Terrain

The trail is labeled as singletrack and is mostly rideable. However, there are some stretches that require you to cross the wash. At these parts, the ground maybe a little bit sandy or rocky, depending on the conditions.

Access

Starting at the Loose Canyon Trailhead off of Casto Canyon Road, the trail travels along a wash bed for 3.0 miles up to Cassidy Trail.

Food and drink

It is better to bring a full bottle of water, since there is no facility on the way,

More details

This trail connects with the Cassidy Trail, which will take you north to the Casto Canyon Trail to make a loop back to the Losee Canyon Trailhead; or south to the Cassidy Trailhead east of the Red Canyon Visitor Center on Highway 12.
