The trail we plan to explore Saturday is the White Blaze Canyon Loop trail, which is around 5 miles and considered a moderate hiking trail. The Canyon Loop trail wanders through 9 of the extraordinary canyons, a sandy riverbed of constant moving water along portions of the canyon floors, through a shady forest, and back up to the top where you can peer into the canyon at various overlooks along the edge of the canyon.
