It's a beautiful hike with an awesome view. If you can find it. When you start the hike you come to a barb wire fence with two trail signs, one left and one right. It's neither of them, you go right through the fence as it's marked with orange poles. To the average person, the see trails posts with arrows and they automatically follow them without looking around. We got lost several times along with other groups trying to find it. Once you go through the fence, you come to a split marked with a pile of stones. Where you either turn left or right. Turn left at the stones and you should be fine after that. Several groups were lost and we only got in the right track after we heard other hikers coming back from the cave and told them to stay were they were and followed their voices. It's an amazing hike and just wish it was well marked. Good luck!

5 hours going counter-clockwise. Beautiful views on an overcast cool day. Loose rocks on some of the trail can be a bit treacherous; sturdy hikers and plenty of water is a must. Lots of various Weavers Needle poses throughout hike.

Tips:

Found the trail head without a problem. The thing I found which was not mentioned prior to my visit was that when you come to the fence with the yellow National Forest sign on it, you go through the fence. There are signs for trails to the left and right of the fence which I don't believe lead to the cave.We followed a small post that said "trail" with an American flag on it and ended up going out of the way. The fence is wide enough to walk through single file and is painted orange at the entry/exit.
Once you get through here it is pretty easy to follow the trail from there.

Be sure to note where the trail is when you pass through the wash of the canyon so when you come back on the way down, you don't end up going down the wash versus the actual trail.

Overall, it is a beautiful hike with amazing views. We hiked at about 9a on a week day and we were the second car in the dirt lot. The lot was almost full when we got back to the car.

Perfect hike for kids. interesting hieroglyphics.

trail has a lot of erosion over the years from weather and foot track but still awesome! Wear good shoes, this isn't just a nature walk like the description says.......the scenery is beyond amazing!

Loved the final destination but the trails were so poorly marked we got lost many many times!!!

Perfect trail for the whole family with a payoff at the end
