The north side of Agua Canyon features a scarlet stairstep plateau. As remarkable as this vista is during the day, Aqua Canyon becomes extraordinary at dawn. The rising sun bathes the rocks and valley with vivid reds, yellows and oranges. Adventurous hikers enjoy the Agua Canyon Trail. The trailhead is located near the Ponderosa Canyon Overlook. The sometimes-steep path is 1.5 mile long (three miles roundtrip).
