Take in the Views
The hike though short, is very difficult, but worth the reward of the views at the top. It is the highest point that can be reached in Caineville, so there is nothing to block the sight or the surrounding area and mountains. Make sure to notice the unique sights along the way.
Get a Closer Look
The trail goes up the face of the mesa and circles around a point to the east and then ascends the last level from the back of the point. There are some tight spaces to crawl through just before you reach the top so be aware of those. It is a beautiful interesting hike every step of the way.
Do it at Your Own Pace
There is another way onto this mesa on the back side of North Caineville Mesa. To reach this part you will drive about 8 to 9 miles on a dirt road but the ascent is less difficult.
