Swamp Canyon Trail
Swamp Canyon appears relatively small and sheltered from the overlook, bounded on both sides by fins and hoodoos. This size allows the viewer to develop a more intimate connection with the landscape than some of the grander viewpoints may provide.
From the Swamp Canyon overlook, hikers can descend to either side of the prominence on a trail that will connect with the Under the Rim Trail and then return on the other side, making a loop. We recommend going clockwise.
Though a moderate hike, this trail can be difficult if not prepared. Please carry plenty of water, snacks and appropriate wilderness trek items.
BRCA Swamp Canyon Sheep Trail
Start from the Swamp Camp viewpoint and go clockwise thru ponderosa pines and end with vertical cliffs on both sides. Good land navigation skills a must and bring appropriate hiking items.
