Good canopy and cool canyon bottom make for an excellent hike. Trail is a loose red powder. Some rocky parts where the trail crosses an old dry / seasonal creek bed. DO WATCH OUT FOR BEARS.

The trail-head is easy to drive to and there is a bathroom at the spot. The hike itself is easy and there is lots of shade on the way. There was also a lot of small trails on that went off in different directions if you are feeling adventurous.
Note: There is no waterfall.

Pretty easy hike with majority being in the shade. Good hike for kids. When you reach the end of the trail, there's an opportunity to walk further into the canyon. The climbing from there becomes much more difficult and steep. Great views the higher you climb.

This trail is well maintained and has a good variety of vegetation and fun offshoots. The trail itself is very short and manageable for young children. Beyond the trail, climbing up the huge rock formation at the end was by far the best part. The views from the top are incredible. I highly recommend this trail as an easy, short jaunt. Be warned that it gets busy on the weekends, but there is lots of overflow parking available.

After climbing cathedral rock and devils bridge in the morning this was anticlimactic; however we took a side trail (not at all well marked) to the right of the trail just past the halfway mark up to a natural arch which made this very easy trail much more interesting! There is also a short scramble up after the trail ends where if you get above the tree line you can get a great view back into the Canyon

So pretty! Easy trail with moderate traffic. Scenery is spectacular! Will do again and take more time to slow down to take it in better.
