Hike through a haunted canyon (Really! They jump out at you along the way!). This canyon is a haven of thickly forested woods. Some of the trees are very old, giving a feeling of eerie strangeness. You will see huge maples next to cedar, juniper, oak and mesquite. There are unusual canyon wall formations, as if the earth is exploding in front of you! A deep slot is worth exploring (getting wet?). There will be water in the canyon! Treat yourself to a dose of natural beauty and a little history, too.
