its a short drive on i-40 west to the Hinton exit south on 281 through the town of Hinton you will see signs for the park on the east hand side of the road for the entrance to the canyon.
There were a few eye sores, an oil tank, a waste water lagoon and some weird abandoned buildings, but other than that most of the scenery is pretty. It just kinda spits you out on the road maybe half a mile from the trailhead though. Still it was a pretty fun hike.
Great views of the canyon.
Found the start of the path but lost it several times because of overgrown grass and poor trail markers. Ended up in a circle and headed back. May try again at a later date.
Once finding the trail, it was a good light trail with some scenic areas. Mostly it just follows the back side of the property line
This was a cool trail for the kids... Very easy but fun and some cool rock formations
The trails are well worn and easy to follow excepting their are not any trail markers so you are on your own in guessing where the trail may lead. Pleasant walk and nice overlooks.
