Really enjoyed this hike!
Heading down to the large area of the Colorado River is easy and would be good for just a short stroll.
If you head to the south side of the main road, you'll find lots of different trails heading in all directions.
Easy to stray from the trails but not too hard to find your way back. Just follow the river.
Nice rocks with overhangs and good sights, most of the trail was dense but opened up to good spots in the river bed.
The hill of life is a character building opportunity, but well worth it to see the nice views along the creek. The falls are especially scenic. Not quite as challenging as River Bend, but walking up the hill took the wind of of this big guys sails.
The one negative is there are simply too many dogs of their leashes which is against the rules anyway.
