    David Genco reviewed Horseshoe Bend Trail

    2 months ago

    Easy, short walk over a small hill. Sunrise will come up behind you as you’re looking at the bend so before with the canyon in full shadows or a little later in morning once the sun is fully lighting the canyon are probably the two best picture options unless you’re going for sunset

    Completed over two days but hits most of the high points and you get a pretty good appreciation with this drive. Obviously you’d wanna do the longer hikes (devils garden) early on in the morning but you also wanna do the shorter ones early to avoid the crazy crowds because of how accessible those ones are so you have to decide

    Keep going to (almost) the end to make sure to catch Sheep Rock and then check out the sign at the viewpoint, some cool info!

    Fun trail with three distinct sections. Just be careful, sign at trailhead lists it as “1.5....one way.” Quickly read it and assumed it was mileage for out and back (like normal...). Was in for a slightly longer trip than planned. Lots of groups complaining about water very early on and resting in any shade they could find. Also lots of little kids with no water and barely any clothing/protection. Plan appropriately, it’s lots of sun and decent climbing for families.

    Usually nothing but a 5-star rater because, nature. But the fence is so far back you can’t see any of the fins that make up the “furnace”.... maybe I missed them as others seem to have had better experiences but not a lot of reward here. I’m sure the furnace is beautiful, wherever it is.....

    So trail was fun, not very well defined itself but had enough cairns, signs, and reflective tape hidden in shrubs to make it doable (in the sunlight). Consider myself a somewhat experienced hiker and I lost the trail multiple times, especially at the ladder - turn around immediately! Wandered around the little valley there until I realized the trail continued right where you step down from the ladder. With all this said, make sure you check your directions. Don’t know if it was alltrails or google maps that messed up but I definitely shoulda double checked...originally had me driving up a 4 wheeling road at Onion Creek for 15 miles in my Jetta....did a decent amount before I turned around and just thought I wasn’t making it to the trailhead. When I got service again briefly I realized there was an actual Fisher Towers campsite and trailhead. Headed over and started almost two hours later than I wanted (with it only being 2.2 mi to the turnaround I thought I was ok), resulting in me being 1.75 miles out in pitch black before realizing my foolishness. Longest, scariest return even with a headlamp and a small flashlight. Moral: don’t trust computers and don’t overestimate your abilities. Still an exhilarating drive and a fun, mentally and physically challenging trail.

    David Genco reviewed Devils Garden Loop Trail with 7 Arches

    2 months ago

    Lots of reward for one trail. Looking back I don’t know if I would have done the primitive portion unless you want the extra miles or just to say you did the whole loops. Still beautiful but nothin g you aren’t already exposed to on the earlier parts of the trail. Go early, got to the lot at 7:30 and while there was still parking had to sit around and wait for lots of inconsiderate groups standing around right in front of the arches. Took me 4 hours, being lots of water.

    So amazing and worth it, however took the 43 mile loop as posted at the trailhead. Took probably close to 2 hrs because I couldn’t help but stop for pictures every quarter mile

    Nice little walk. Drive down was a little daunting as I took my Jetta down but made it with no problem as far as the clearance but lots of rumble-strip like patches that make for slow going. Also the steep switch backs the first two-ish miles are a challenge but I’m still here. Unless there’s bad weather don’t let the signs discourage you

    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
