Away from the crowds, but still no solitude

Echo Canyon
Echo Canyon, and other side trails from the main loop, provide a bit more of challenge and fewer people. This section of the trail is just leaving the Summit Trail and entering Echo Canyon.

Comments: I hiked a bunch of the loop side trails (Walnut Springs, Echo Canyon, Turkey Pass Trail, etc). There were far fewer people here than on the Summit Trail, but with the weather so nice on this day there were still plenty of people around.
