Challenging, fun hike. There are a few big drops that are manageable. You will hear the Colorado River as you get close. The water was cold this time of year!

A challenging yet enjoyable trail with a handful of descending and climbing. Beware of the $25 vehicle entry fee.

This was one of my favorite hikes ever. It's magical when you reach the Colorado. Bring plenty of water and pack a lunch! Don't go alone bc you won't see a lot of people and if you get stuck or need help climbing, a mate would help!

Really like this hike. My kids and I hike this trail every year. There are a few drops that need navigated, no ropes needed.
My kids love the adventure of the hike.
We wade, fish and watch the rafts run the rapids, when we get to the river. I have taken kids as young as 7yrs old. The younger ones just need a boost up the four to five foot drops.
