The sign at the trailhead says it all: beware, there is no trail. I went to this hike expecting to breeze through it quite quickly. Boy, was I taken by surprise. There truly is no trail. You just find your own way up a canyon via rock scrambling and zigging and zagging across various terrain. I like to think of myself as a fairly experienced hiker and rock climber, and there were still plenty of very difficult sections of maneuvering required. It's more of a tricky rock scramble than a hike. The toughest part by far was after about a half mile in, the section approaching and passing the (beautiful) dried waterfall canyon. I scrambled up the right side of the waterfall, but wonder if the left would be easier. Hard to tell. Once you get above the waterfall, it's relatively smooth sailing. My biggest suggestion for not getting lost in the trail? Follow the sand. The sand of the former creek bed is really the main guiding force through the canyon, although it's not always possible to follow. Best part about the hike are the gorgeous rock formations and views.

11/10/19-The description doesn't mention the scrambling over large boulders or the lack of obvious trail markings. It is easy to get off route. Fun to explore and poke around the nooks and crannies under and around the boulders (many with a unique texture with pink feldspar embedded). You will need both hands and feet free for this one.
