This trail is easy in the sense that the trail itself is wide and very clear, but lord help your legs if you are out of shape. Going up, the entire trail is completely at an incline with virtually no flat spots; I’m not complaining though because I enjoyed the pleasant challenge. Coming back down is a breeze. Great trail for exercise.

Nice terrain and some good views. You get to the trail by walking directly out of the back door of the visitors center. Not difficult by any means, but I felt the path was a little unclear. Not as many markers to keep you in the right direction like many of the other trails at the national monument.

Fun hike. Nice for beginners as it offers at least a bit of a challenge. Beautiful views.

Easy hike; great views. Got off trail tho....will have to go back!

we definitely got lost through here. and I mean LOST! make sure you follow the cairns and stick to the right. we ended up following a seemingly obvious path only to find ourselves climbing over boulders on the edge of a cliff... pretty wicked views though! if we wouldn't have taken that detour, it would have been a super easy and neat walk. highly recommend!

It’s fine. Nothing spectacular but a super simple easy hike. We’ve gone at sunset, watched at the top, and hiked down with flashlights

Although it’s a climb, the wide path and relatively even surface make this a pleasant walk.

Love this one for a quick early morning or evening hike. Trail/road is nice enough to run on.

Rode Rim Rock Dr from the east entrance to the west entrance, and then finished the 'Tour of the Moon' loop via public roads Broadway, S Broadway and S Camp Rd. The route outside the park is well-signed. Traffic was light on this weekday ride, and the views were awesome. Lights are required due to 3 tunnels.

Easy walk down, slightly harder up. We went at 2pm and there is, like others have noted zero protection from the sun.

Love this hike. 5 miles in and out. Beautiful scenery. Must do early to enjoy.

Beautiful area. Trail markings are not great. Would do it again with more time to explore a bit more. I wish it wasn't so unmarked/misleading as far as sign directions.

Great hike, box like rock canyon at the end is shaded and cool after the hot hike. Definately bring some water!

Easy hike with beautiful views, have been hiking this trail for over 12 years, it never gets old. Try hiking it at sunrise, sunset and even at night with a full moon shining as your only light, you won't regret it. I've done this trail well over 200 times as I live a fairly close, that being said if you hike this in the summer you better get there no later than 6am or you will be roasting in the heat on the way back down, happy hiking !

This was a great little trail right at the entrance of the park. It’s very easy to find and follow and offers great views along the way. There is very little coverage from the sun as it used to act as a model t road, so be sure to have sun protection and water.

Beautiful trail with amazing rock formations! Easy enough for the kids but very hot out there bring lots of water even for this short hike.

Beautiful easy trail to hike. I recommend adding the Inner Flume if you like having a sense of adventure.

Nice little hike to a great rock formation. Well worth the walk up.

Great starter trail for my wife and I during our stay in the area. Unfortunately waterfalls were just a trickle as it’s dry. Some boulder scrambling but loved it.

Nice afternoon drive with great views Grandchildren found lots to explore

Beautiful views of Colo NM. Not terribly difficult. Easy terrain and lovely overviews of the canyon.

Short and sweet. It was fun to run down, but watch your footing.

Basically a walk up a steep dirt road. Very exposed - sunscreen and water a must.

Signage is misleading, so glad I had this app! not tons of shade so go early or late. we saw lots if wildflowers and blooming cactus in early may.

Beautiful drive. Lots of view points, hiking trails to keep you going all day. Hiked 5 of the shorter hikes during the 5 hour drive on the way home

Easy walk. Read about the first superintendent that climbed Independence Rock every 4th of July to plant an American Flag at the top. Heard voices and looked over to the rock and saw two climbers a short distance from the top
