Sidewinder Trail

This is yet another really exciting trail! This trail is accessed by the Cove Wash Trailhead, and to Sidewinder’s trailhead, you will need to take Precipice Trail to get there. This is a beautiful trail with amazing views to the valley below. This is a great horseback riding trail for all who are interested in horseback riding. It has a 500 ft climb to the top, so that is a 1/14 slope, so it is fairly steep.
