Trip Description


This trip lies in the valley between East Dog Teeth Range and Middle Dog Teeth Range. Although I give it a name of river, it is actually a river of rocks instead of water. The lower portion of the trip is mainly embraced by forest and its profile is ralatively mild. The upper portion exhibits itself in open area with steep rocky profile. The upper portion provides captivating view and bizarre landscape.

Hiking on rock river could be pretty tricky, the rocks may slide. Hikers should avoid hiking along the same line lest the someone set off a falling rock.
