Great hike even though it is pretty short - there are a lot of things to see on this hike so take your time - we went in December 2016 and had the trail to ourselves - it was awesome

Fun trail for the family to do together. Some rough terrain, which leads to plenty of features to explore. I recommend the drive to hike the Trail Through Time.
