Grotto Canyon
A short hike through a water-smoothed canyon.

After Karst Spring turned out to be rather short, we tacked this on on the way home.

The trail follows Grotto Creek north of highway 1.
The first 2km or so are through a small canyon, with scoured-smooth walls, and neat rock.
There are also some pictographs along the way.
At about the 2km mark, the canyon splits, and a small spur can be followed off to the east, where there is found a waterfall.
The main canyon continues to the west, but opens up to a wider valley.
There is no more canyon, but continuing up the valley will bring you to a hoodoo, and sport climbing routes.

...wonder if you can climb up there...?
