Take in the views
Like Burro Wash, Pleasant Creek has its own array of white stone. It is unique though, because of the mixture of Red Rock and the Navajo Sandstone. This mixture of red and white creates a beautiful view for any traveler.
Get a closer look
The cottonwood trees that line the creek bed will provide a beautiful accent to the meandering trail and white sandstone formations. Along the way you will have opportunities to leave the trail and ascend the rock slopes on either side of the creek. These elevated areas will provide long views in all directions.
Do it at your own pace
There are ample opportunities to venture into alcoves, slot canyons, or narrow side canyons.
