The view was worth the hike. We completed this hike as a family.
Excellent family trail. Easy going terrain leading to spectacular views. Definitely worth the hike. The North Rim of the park is much less accessible and therefore has far fewer visitors, adding to the experience of this short hike.
Even thought its a bit longer than other "trails" in the park, this one is still easy, flat, and like so many other areas you'll get great views of the canyon.
Trail is well kept mostly dirt terrain and rock out cropping's with scenic views of the Gunnison Gorge visible on much of the hike. The best view is at the end. The Gorge is deep and from the rock cliffs above the river below looks like a creek. It's amazing. Morning hike was a cool 32 deg. The trail had a mix of frozen and wet ground and snow patches. Took some great photos.
