Nice easy trail, well marked, beautiful views. I broke in my new hiking boots on this trail!
Easy trail that offers great views of Soda Canyon, and of Balcony House
This is a very easy trail in to an overlook where you can see the length of Soda Canyon. The best part was viewing Balcony House. We had toured Balcony House the day before and it was great to get pictures looking into the house. Also able to get pictures of the ladders to climb into and out of the Balcony House.
Great view of Balcony house on an easy trail
