The is a wonderful, shorter hike that quickly brings you up to impressive views of Castle Valley. Initially, you have a quick climb up to the ridge, then follow the ridge NW to the base of Parriott Mesa. You then have another steady climb up to the base. The trail eventually kind of disappears, but you can continue around at your own discretion. There are impressive views from the top, and you can complete this hike fairly quickly. An added bonus: pretty much nobody hikes in this area. Enjoy!
