The Palisade Rim trail is open to Mountain Biking, Horseback riding, and Hiking. You can bring your dogs along as well.

WARNING: This trail is considered very difficult and caution should be taken when riding/hiking. You will pass very closely to cliff edges and is NOT recommended to; “inexperienced riders,” anyone with a fear of edges and ledges, or those with a weak heart and a will to live.
