After exploring much of bangs canyon this year, Ribbon trail has come to be my favorite.
You have to start at the small turn off to the right before coming to little park. There are massive caves from washed benonite, and a nice climb down a small rock face before connecting with Andy's loop.
The massive sandstone rock tops towards the end of the hike are a bear, and great exercise.
*If you're coming from the TH, if you get slightly off track you may end up on Old Gordan Trail.
Thought I would be doing a quick drive-through, ended up staying for 6 hours. Really beautiful, absolutely recommended. Permit was $10 at the gate (and good for a week if you wanted to stay longer). I did the serpent's trail off the road which has some really awesome views as well.
