Beginning at East Rim Viewpoint, Trail #7 makes a steep descent down the rim of North Canyon, passing through mixed conifer forests, oak thickets, ferns, and rock cliffs, before joining the two forks of Trail #4 at the bottom. Because of the steep-sided and narrow pathway on this trail, riders should use only experienced trail horses.
