This is a good short hike if you stick to the upper section of the trail (the first 1.5 miles). If you go down into the lower canyon, the climb is pretty tough to come back the Canyon Rim trail, but not much easier if you do as we did and return via the Equestrian campground and the road back to the trail start. The best views are in those first 2 miles, after which you are in the bottoms. Near the entrance of the trail between it and the campground bathhouse is a community of prairie dogs that should not be missed.
