Description

A remote & very scenic area with few established routes and heaps of potential. Steep, tall walls of mostly super-hard coconino sandstone reward the few who venture this far.

Getting There

When the road turns to dirt, check the odometer and drive about 3.5 miles to the signed Secret Canyon Trailhead on the left. This is roughly 1 mile past the signed Brins Mesa Trailhead.

Hike the Secret Canyon Trail for around 1/2 mile, then turn left on the signed H.S. Canyon Trail. Follow this for roughly 2 miles until it ends in H.S. Canyon at a large cairn. From there you can look up to the left and see obvious large, steep wall. There are other nice walls with lots of potential on the way, so look around.
