Kate F. on Hieroglyphic Trail
Easy hike! Saw a lot of kids and dogs breezing through. Loved the scenic view of the desert all the way to the falls! We wanna go back to conquer the canyon through the ridge trail.
Wow What a place
We did 16miles in 9hrs
Bring plenty of water and snacks to keep you going. The views are spectacular, crossing the river is a constant adventure, be prepared to get your shoes wet. Plan accordingly if you plan on completing the entire loop.
I went to this trail head yesterday (Saturday) thinking it would be a nice trail to take some out of town guests with small children.
First of all, you will hit traffic for the renaissance festival which will delay your hiking plans considerably.
Upon arriving to the trail head, I was greeted by a sheriff standing by, per the residents in the area, waiting to ticket anyone who parks along the streets as the parking lot for the trail is unable to handle much traffic and fills up quickly. You are NOT allowed to park anywhere for the hike but in the lot. When I got there, 3 cars were already circling waiting for a spot to open. I left without hiking this trail.
I do not plan if ever returning to this hike. Your welcome Gold Canyon residents.
