Description

Getting There

Higher clearance vehicles are strongly recommended.
The road to this canyon (see photo) has deteriorated a bit with the popularity of the light-weight 2 and 4 seat 4-wheelers, but you can drive in and out without 4 wheel drive as long as you don't try to drive back up the steep hill. Park by the bird watering thingy and then head up the wash. The trail is easy to follow, is about 1 mile long and rises up approximately 1200 feet.
The trail ends under the Clear Light Cave. The Porcelain Wall is immediately to the left end of the cave.
