We will start from the Interpretive Center parking area and then head for the first look out. Following the Overlook Trail we will descend down the Waterfalls Trail and admire the spectacular waterfalls. After taking in the waterfalls we will head down Sitton's Gulch Trail and come back taking in the canyon from below before ascending to the top of the canyon. From there we will follow the West Rim Loop Trail, ending back at the Interpretive Center. 

The trail map can be found here: CloudlandCanyon-2013.pdf
