Description

Starting from Forest Road 79, the section of trail to the descent into Apache Canyon is easy and generally wide. This trail segment is suitable for casual strolls through the woods. The trail becomes much steeper and more difficult as it descends into and climbs out of Apache Canyon. Bicyclists will probably have to walk some sections of trail. There are picnic tables and fire grates at the top of Glorieta Baldy.
