William Canyon Trl
At this point, if you step off the trail to the east, you can see down into Williams Canyon. There is a trail from the floor of the canyon up to here. If you so desired, you could enter Williams Canyon from Manitou Springs, hike a couple of miles to the trail split, turn left, climb a half mile to the Waldo loop, hike the loop, and return via Williams Canyon. This is a beautiful alternative – see why by looking at my guide to Williams Canyon. As you hike north around the peak and back into Waldo Canyon, look out at the limestone walls on the east side of Williams. These walls are still relatively flat, not being as involved in the uplift that created the hill on which you stand.
