Great scenery and good escape from the heat of the valley. As I read here... bring bug spray!

This is a great little trail with beautiful views and meadows. There is a small elevation drop in the beginning thus is uphill on the way out but not bad. The trail is as long as you want to make it as there are other trails that intersect. Such a nice walk/hike, before we knew it we were 3 miles in making it a 6 mile round trip. Definitely will take this trail again!! Pics posted.

This hike was beautiful! Thought it might be a little busier since it was the holiday, but we went later in the day and it was nice and quiet. We parked at the campground and hiked from there. I liked this because we were able to use the campground restrooms before departing (a necessity when hiking with children). The trail was easy, my almost 3 year old was able to hike most of it without needing a piggyback ride. We also took our 8 month old in a hiking pack without any difficulties. We can't wait to come back and explore the other trails that branch off at the end of the Sandy's Canyon trail.

Quality hike. Canyon was beautiful. Idea for families although parts of the hike might be a bit too much for young children (2-5 years) to do on their own.
