Nice hike lots of awesome rock formations and colors ..very popular spot for climbers parking lot was packed ..most traffic goes to the east loop ,if just hiking I'd suggest starting to the west and finishing loop from the east ..trail is easy to follow first half from west loop goes straight up to the saddle gets that blood pumping ,rest of hike is all down hill or flat river bar walking ,a little bit of rock scrambling .. canyon goes on for another few miles if u want to add more to the hike ..
Awesome hike with great rock formations and stunning colors.
Good hike. Candy cane rock interior. Bring plenty of water. Best todo in fall or spring. Overall fun.
Kraft Mountain's interior is one of the most beautiful I have seen; colorful stripes of red and white, hoodoos, arches and windows are all plentiful on this rugged mountain.
