Rating *****
Length 6.8 mile (return) - 3 Hour, 40 minutes (return trip). Moderate.
Elevation 700 - 1730 feet feet
Access Park roadside along the highway at mile 44.6

A scenic canyon loop.
Expect some small boulders and rocks along the way.

On top of the ridge at the end of the drainage, the Torote canyon bowl can be seen below.
Hike down into the bowl and hike downhill (left/south), following the main wash.

The Torote canyon narrows and widens, keep in the main canyon wash heading south, up to the Indian Gorge wash/road.
Head east avoiding the dirt road.

At the end of Indian Gorge, head north in a direct line towards the car.
