The latest Hike of the Week goes back to the Needles District of Canyonlands National Park.

The Slickrock Trail is a good way to see some scenery in a couple hours. Click here for the full details of the hike and some more photos. The vital statistics are below.

This is the second of two trails I hiked in the Needles District in April. The hike to Druid Arch was published earlier this month.
