Really beautiful, lots of places to adventure off the trail to catch some different views without getting lost. Trail was well-defined and an easy out-and-back walk. Absolutely recommended.

This trail is good for beginning hikers, it's a great trail for kids and family. I like that it's really wide so it's easier to pass people and move around. It is also a great place for pictures, every time you get higher it's prettier. This overall is one of the best trails.

Super easy hike. No shade all of the trail was sun exposed. No really steep cliffs. Wide walking path.

It was fun, good exercise. Nice views of Grand Junction. Nice plants and birds, a friendly squirrel and humans along the trail. No serpents on this day. BITCHEN geological formation!

this is a nice, short trail. looks like there are two parking areas, the first one is soon after you come into the park. that specific one is the lower-end of the trail. if you continue to drive up, you will see a little parking area at the top of the trail. we parked at the top and wished we had parked at the opposite, so that we could end the on a downhill note rather than uphill. it's not all that steep, so I guess either way works :)
