Echo Amphitheater Trail #46

Area Status: Temporarily Closed
This area is Closed

Attractions and Considerations:
The Echo Amphitheater Trail is a local favorite. Schools, RV Clubs, and other visitors take advantage of the covered picnic areas and trail. The concrete trail from the parking lot meanders to Echo Canyon. The trail ascends at a moderately easy pace. The last part of the trail has steep stairs leading up to the Echo Canyon. Rocks are a natural habitat for snakes, so stay on the trail and off the rocks.
