One of the few loop hikes in Island in the Sky, Neck Spring Trail gives you a different aspect of this part of the park. The shady spring is a great lunch stop and you’ll see plenty of evidence of historic ranching. Park at the Schafer Canyon Overlook and cross the road. A quiet 6 mile hike and recommended. Note: while the hike is fairly easy there is one steep slickrock section.
