The one obstacle on this trail is known as S.O.B. Hill. You have to make a perfect 90 degree left turn at this sharp rock on the left with a steep hill on the other side.
As much as I would have loved to hike all the way to the Druid Arch during this trip, we kept our hiking short since it was so hot and Maralee didn't like hiking for very long. The Joint Trail hike was only 0.6 miles one way.
Views from the trail.
There are a lot of cool, dead, twisted trees in the Needles. Also you have to be careful not to step on the cryptobiotic soil while on the trails since it takes years to repair itself.
At the end of the trail, not only is there a slot canyon but what appears to be a huge shrine to cairns. This was Savanna's favorite part.
Maralee's favorite part was the slot canyons.
