This was a great trail. Nice and easy at the beginning and end, fantastic views, totally different landscape at the hieroglyphics site, and done easily in a couple of hours.

A nice hike, trail is mostly lose rock - 1" gravel and larger - and requires attention to where you are stepping in place to prevent rolling an ankle. But it is definitely worth the hike!

Definitely a moderately difficult hike since it's mostly up hill and rocky. It's a beautiful hike though and well worth the trip. I will be doing this one again for sure.

An easy climb on a clearly marked, heavily traveled trail. Very picturesque. Good exercise for older or beginning hikers. Leisurely, three hour walk if you stop occasionally to take in the views. Mostly uphill on the way in, and then downhill on the way back out.
