Great, short hike for kids. Lots to explore!

Absolutely incredible hike! I highly recommend this hike for anyone who wants a tough day of hiking, an amazing view, and a great trail. The watch tower at the top is an added bonus!

I'm going to be honest I was disappointed in this trail. The waterfall wasn't flowing and the pools were ok to look at. The Canyon is nice scenery but we were expecting more. Not much to see for most of the hike. The trail is very flat and hard to follow. Look for the rock piles! We did the whole loop and it was probably about 13.5-14 miles and took us about 7 hours (we stopped and ate lunch).

Amazing views! The hike was not too difficult and was quite nice the whole way up. Warning! There were a lot of trees in the path from falling over but it only makes it more of an adventure! :)

Watch out for rattlesnacks. Well marked trail.

Very short, very easy trail for walking. Did this yesterday with my wife, 6 mo old son, and dog no problem. Nice views along the way

Hiking sticks highly recommended. The incline starts at the trailhead and doesn't stop. A lot of switchbacks, probably would not recommended for those not in hiking shape (we thought we were on hiking shape - thanks goodness for our hiking sticks). We only saw about 5 other people on the trail and there was some tree maneuvering/climbing the higher we got. We didn't make it to the top due to no yak tracks and some leftover snow in the way but we will absolutely be back to finish.

This trail is great for running since it is mostly level. Lots of smaller turn-off trails to get to view points could get you off track. If you stop seeing cairns you should retrace your steps to find it again. The weather was variable in early spring. Snow drizzle in the morning turned into sunshine with clouds in the afternoon. It made for a fun and beautiful adventure.
