Fun out n' back hike with an amazing swimming hole at the end and great cliff jumping to boot!
Bell Trail leads to The Crack which leads to swimming and cliff jumping. Remote and beautiful area, I try to go 3-4 times a year. Outstanding day trip!
Very nice hike with great scenery. Did a Little Rock scrambling at the end which was fun.
This is my new favorite trail! It is a pretty easy trail for the first two miles- did some trail running along the first 2 miles, although it is pretty rocky in places. After the first 2 miles, the trail gets really beautiful! You look off the edge to the creek and see tons of desert plants and red rock. There are spots where you climb, so it's a good combo of easy and moderate. I only did about 3 miles in and had to turn around due to rain, but I can't wait to go back and finish!
This is by far one of my favorite hikes. It's absolutely beautiful the entire way down to the water. The scenery was absolutely mind blowing.The cliff jumping at the end was a good reward for the four mile hike to Beaver Creek. Definitely bring plenty of water because there is very little cover on the trail. Also recommended that you pack a lunch or some snacks of some kind.
This trail was super dope! Accurately described, that it is easy most of the way with just a short, slightly uphill rise at the end! The water is well worth it tho, so clear & refreshing! However, it was 109 degrees when we did the hike. The sun was brutal. Definitely go prepared! Tons of water, big hats, sunscreen, snacks, all that. I am 14 weeks pregnant and unfortunately would not recommend this hike if you are as well. It was just too hot and difficult to keep my body temp under control during the exposed portion of the trail. Definitely kill it tho during the cooler time of year!
