The first stop on the short hike is a small window in limestone of the Pennsylvanian Oquirrh Group that may be equivalent to some part of the Ely Limestone (judging by its air-photo outcrop pattern alone — I haven't looked for diagnostic fossils). The online, interactive Utah geological map isn't specific to formation in this part of Utah.

|View to the west or southwest from our limestone ridge.|
|The trail continues to the south between two ribs of limestone, amidst the cheat grass and halogeton.|
|The view looking south toward unnamed hills, also underlain by Pennsylvanian limestone.|
|Pack rat midden in tiny cave.|
|Trail's end. A part of the Cedar Range in the distance on the left; the unnamed hills seen earlier on the right.|
