Didn’t know what to expect... local sales clerk at REI recommended! Totally thrilled with this hike! It was gorgeous!!!! Short easy trail and beautiful scenery !!!! I highly recommend! Make sure you bring water... I saw several hikers with no water!!!!

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.

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

Great view and easy hike!

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.

Great trail for a short morning hike. Dogs loved it! Great Canyon formations and mica found on the trail.

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

Fun, some nice views. Very much high desert. I did the whole hike in about 4 hours, ground hogs and giant Turkey Vultures.

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

Easy to hike and very family friendly trail. The kids had so much fun looking for the biggest pieces of quartz or mica. There is so much else to explore on the way in and out.

Easy quick “hike”! Great for kids.

First time up there and it was beautiful and not real long. Best part is there is more then one trailhead there so if you want more then pick another trail and go again!

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

Trail wide and well marked until I got to where the trails leaves the wash. Saw only one cairn so I just followed all of the foot traffic which lead me way above the kitchen. Returned back done and figured out where the kitchen really was. The actual Devils Kitchen was awesome.

Easy trail, perfect after lunch at the nearby Picnic Area. Great views!

Super easy hike! With an amazing view at the end. Well throughout the entire hike.

The trail is relatively easy but long, almost 9 miles round trip. If you are not a nature lover, the hike itself is not very exciting. However, the view at the end is literally breathtaking and worth the trip.

Bring sturdy, comfortable shoes since the trail is surprisingly rocky. A hat and plenty of water is a must since there is no shade for virtually most of the trail. Trail path is easy to follow for the most part but you lose it right at the end. Also lots of cow pies on the path, so watch your step.

Good family trail, easy for kids. Good views from the bottom of the canyon and pretty rock up to the mine.

Loved this hike. Not much of an elevation gain so its easy to keep on moving. View at the end is stunning, sat there for 2 hrs.

great trail. My 5 and 3 year old were able to make it the whole way.

Really beautiful hike close to town. Best in spring or fall when the weather is cooler.

Excellent trail with beautiful views

Our family loves this hike! Our dog loves this one too. We usually go in the morning but so do many other people. Beautiful.

Super easy with lots to see! Took our small dog on it and he had a blast in the running water beds. The sparkling white mica rocks made the ground look majestic. Had a fair bit of traffic.
