This trail is typically utilized for the boat tour on the south side of the Black Canyon to the Morrow Point Reservoir. It starts with a 180 feet (232 stairs) descent to the reservoir. It then follows the reservoir/river for about a mile. The trail eventually tails off as the banks are too narrow for a trail. There is fishing access along this trail.
