Route Description for Eye of God Trail
Combining the beauty of nature, interesting geological/historical features, and a short overall distance, the Eye of God Trail is an excellent hiking route if you are simply looking to get out onto the trails for a quick jaunt outdoors.
Setting out from the trailhead, you will follow Burns Canyon Road as it bends to the east and climbs slightly uphill through the desert. Keep an eye on your footing here, as the road can be quite rocky and rugged in places.
Eventually, the trail will bend back to the west and bring you to the edge of some trees, where you will be able to spot what is left of the Eye of God. After exploring the area and investigating this once-magnificent rock formation, you can simply head back along the same route to return to the trailhead.
