Pretty awesome day hike. Did this in late afternoon and finished in the dark. Couple easy scrambling sections made this real fun. About 2hrs round trip.

Short easy trek for kids. Pretty scenery but nothing spectacular.

On the NPS hike guide, it is actually called "Hanging Garden" trail. This 1.2 mile trail is flat, with the exception of a mild climb towards the actual garden. The garden is neat to see, but nothing crazy. Our dog enjoyed the trail too.

Belle descente du canyon récompensée par une pause au bord du Colorado. Plus facile à la montée qu’à la descente pour trouver son chemin.
