This causes excessive erosion. Several efforts have been made by the National Park Service and the canyoneering community to repair this eroded slope. However, even the smallest amount of use causes a huge impact on this delicate slope. To prevent further damage, stay in the rocky boulder field directly below the last rappel. As you scramble through the watercourse (boulder field) you will come to a ledge with a 100 foot drop. Rappel or follow the rocky area until you reach Pine Creek. You can then follow Pine Creek drainage all the way to the bridge and parking area. No! Yes! EXPERIENCE YOUR AMERICA The National Park Service cares for special places saved by the American people so that all may experience our heritage.
