Easy, well-marked trail with great scenery.

Easy hike with rewarding high views of Dinosaur National Park. I would advise a bit of caution if you're not good with heights, but most of the drop off areas have railing for protection. I encourage you to get a pamphlet at the trailhead if one is available, they hold interesting information about what you will be seeing at the numbered trail markers along the way.

This trail was exactly as billed. Yes a long but mostly scenic drive (with several overlooks to stop) from the highway. The trail is worth it. Easy hiking with some simple inclines. Some shade depending on time of day. Lovely trees. And great views starting after marker 4. The $1 guide is interesting especially for a family. Saw a mule deer on the drive. Could be combined with a drive to the Echo Park campground for the below view.

Best trail, super easy and best reward even compared to some peaks I’ve hiked. Someone...was returning from beyond the fence when I got to the end, said it stayed pretty wide and sturdy for a while longer with MUCH better panoramic views of the rivers

Loved it!! Steep but you can do it and totally worth it! We went in the heat of the day and still loved it. Just bring water

Thoroughly pleasant. Recommend tying in would the sound of silence trail (desert voices second)

The hike behind the cabin is beautiful and serene. The other hike I enjoyed less. Seemed like a good place for kids to run since it had a lot of trail meanders.

Holy smokes! The views of the Green River to the west and Echo Park to the east are breathtaking. Seeing steamboat and Jenny Lind rock from this vantage point really gives you such perspective (especially if you take the precarious drive down to Echo). You are high up on the mesa/cliffs- there are extremely steep slopes on both sides of the trail as you head out to the the overlook area (that section is fenced). You would want to take precautions and keep a close watch if you have younger children with you. I did this trail in mid-July, temperature was around 98-99 that day and I felt it with every step. I think the trail would be fairly easy if it wasn't such a scorcher. I took my 7-year old (the heat really bothered her), a 12-year old but for the most part they managed with little difficulty. It's a long drive to get to the trail head, but so worth it. The views!!

It’s a long drive to get to the trailhead, but this trail is very much worth it. I took my 6 year old (along with a husband, 10 & 13 years olds too), and he handled it easily. Lots of photo opps, it has lots of stunning views! Well worth the drive in!

Great hike, gorgeous overlook at the end. You walk along a ridge with great views of two beautiful canyons to your left and right. Definately worth the drive and hike. Some sections are very steep, you may want to hold on to small children, especially near the end. Went in the morning and didn't see any other hikers till the return trip at about 10 AM.

For such an easy hike, it has the most amazing views!! It's certainly worth the drive there!

Great for the family! Lots of rocks for the kids to climb on. Tons of fun

Hiked with Matt Tomlinson. Nice, well maintained trail. We watched a storm roll in.

This trail connects up with the slightly more scenic Sounds of Silence trail, which has its own reviews on the AllTrails website. If you do both loops, it will be a not terribly strenuous 5.5 miles. I did the loop using the connector from the Sounds of Silence trail and did not go all the way down to the Split Mountain Campground. Very well maintained and marked trail with many informational signs posted along the way, most of which suggest that conservation and protecting the wilderness is a good thing. I'm down with that.

Like others have said. Great hike in cooler shade to the small inner canyons. I loved the history behind Jose's cabin. Did the hike with two crabby girls (9 and 11) and afterwards they loved it!

Great hike! Trail was a little difficult to follow in the beginning as it winds in and out of a creek/waterway. Trail offered beautiful views. Started out around 6pm and caught the setting sun in a lot of photos.

did this in the evening in april. we shared the trail with a handful of deer and wild life. my girls (9, 5, 4) loved it. beautiful.

Very cool. the trail is a bit rough, up and over a few boulders and slick in a few spots. totally worth it

Great small hike, Great rock formations

Great hike, take an hour, take two. A short steep climb then small ups and downs. Wonderful petroglyphs to be found. Including a fantastic panel that if you are walking north, sneaks up on you around a bend in the trail. Walk slowly and be amazed at what is to be seen. Did the hike with a 9, 11, and 13 year old. No problem.

mild walk, no elevation change. dog friendly and beautiful Petroglyphs everywhere

Spectacular views of the Green River, Echo Park, and Yampa Bench. We watched a group of rafters make their way down the Green.

Easy hike. Great scenery. Interesting history. The creek is clear and beautiful. Josie Moran had an amazing place.

Great Hike! Brought my daughter and we had a great time. I also recommend the Three Kings Hike!

A hot tiring tails, but not too long that kids can make it, with a little encouragement. Took a 4,5,7 year old, and while we had lots of water breaks (bring lots!), they were able to keep going. Lots of hills.

Great place to take people that can't or don't want to walk far amazing petroglyphs I'd recommend not touching the petroglyphs because the oils on your fingers can wear out the petroglyphs the have waters tshirts and pop all on a trust system
