This will be a fantastic place to view the changing leaves this fall!

Although it’s named the Endless Wall trail, the hike is only 4.4 miles.

To reach the trailhead, turn off Route 19 onto Lansing-Edmond Road, located just north of the Canyon Rim Visitor Center. Fern Creek Trailhead is located 1.3 miles (just before Fern Creek) down this road, while the Nuttall Trailhead is 1.8 miles from U.S. Route 19. Lansing-Edmond Road is a narrow road, so use caution driving down it.
