Would not do unless it's just rained in the last few days, we did in the summer time, no water in the pot holes, kinda boring, especially if your here for pictures. It is Easy if you do it!
Easy, short trail as advertised. NPS has actually converted this into a loop. You will climb up the potholes to great views of Needles along with the surrounding bluffs, mesas, buttes, and spires. I encourage you to explore once at the height of the boulder. You can get great shots of the Needles. Telephoto and wide angle lenses recommended if you're taking your DSLR.
Good trail. Exactly what it's supposed to be.
If you did the slick rock trail then you already saw plenty of dry potholes and most of the views. It was a little disappointing. If you have to skip one short trail in the needles let this be it.
Fun, short hike in the Needles district of Canyonlands National Park.
