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.
This trail provides an alternate entrance or exit connecting to Trail #4 in the Saddle Mountain Wilderness. It descends from East Rim Viewpoint into North Canyon, where it joins Trail #4.
This is a 2 to 3 hour round-trip hike, with an easy descent and a steep climb on the return. Most often this trail is used as a link to either Trail #4 or Trail #36.
