It was very rocky and the going up was a lot easier than going down. There were spots were the trail wasn’t clear. The views were amazing and it was worth the effort.

beautiful and interesting.

I had tried to do this hike before, but apple maps lead me to wrong spot. I did today using gps and alltrails to get me in to the trailhead. It was a great hike. I wouldn’t rate it as hard, I would say moderate. The return hike sucks the last mile and to get to the big ruin you have to do a little climbing that may make one uncomfortable, but in total it’s not bad and a lot of fun. Very peaceful, not heavily trafficked. Trail is pretty easy to follow. Definitely make sure you bring plenty of water and snacks... oh yeah, saw a good number of places that would be very cool to camp along the trail. I think I will return to try.
Drive in is rough, make sure you have high clearance four wheel drive car.

This trail is so beautiful but is very rocky. I saw a few people with small kids and dogs end up carrying them. If your up for it the views are breath taking. Totally work the hike and the rocky trail.

Relatively busy, and parking is challenging, but a nice hike!

Great hike

Starts out flat for the first half of the trail then gradually becomes steep and rocky until you reach the cave. The cave is quite deep and wide, makes for great pictures. Very fine and powdery dirt inside cave that gets into everything!

One of the most beautiful hikes I’ve been on. A bit of a drive but totally worth it.

Love this trail. I started a bit later in the day, so I only hiked to La Barge. Trail climbs straight away a little over 1,000 ft in elevation from the trailhead and then quickly descends into La Barge. Even though I only made it that far, it was a fantastic and challenging hike, about 6 and a half miles round trip. Absolutely beautiful and dramatic views to boot, a good day hike through and through.

Fantastic Trail. The views were very beautiful. Definitely coming back.

Great views as you gain elevation, and hieroglyphs are worth the effort.

Loved it❣️My Favorite Hike so far

Getting to the trailhead is a bit confusing as you drive through/past an active mining site. Keep going, it’s really worth it!
The trail is lightly traveled for sure...we didn’t run in to anyone on trail. The light traffic made it a very peaceful hike but had to stay on guard to keep on trail. Really no formal markings but several cairns in place from previous trailblazers. It was colder than expected at the start but that turned out to be a good thing on the way back as some stretches are exposed and got a bit warm. Definitely wear layers!
Great canyon wall views and creek-side walking...though most of the creek was dry. Still plenty to see with how the trees and plants and rocks play together. I was surprised and delighted with this hike. Will definitely go again

Great hike. our twins 8 years olds made it with very minimal complaining. Hike is easy but trail makes it slightly for complicated because of how Rocky. would absolutely hike it again. bring a lunch and hang out at the hieroglyphics.

This was a beautiful, easy hike. The petroglyphs were really neat to see. The trail was super crowded and there were a ton of large, slow moving groups so prepare for a slow stroll or go on a weekday.

This hike was amazing! It is long and definitely a scrambly challenge, but it is certainly easier than its north side sister, Flat Iron. The trail is a little tricky to follow, but with GPS we had no problem. I highly recommend GPS for this trail. Spectacular views of gold canyon and of weavers needle. The best part was we only saw a few other people on this hike and had the summit all to ourselves!! This is a great trail if you want amazing views and a challenge, but also to avoid the crowds of Flat Iron.

No definite trail but definitely worth the hike up to see the cave. Pretty good workout.

views are 5 star. totally worth the hike.. getting there and back whole other story. The Cairns markings are pathetic and agreed with others hard to find and keep track of. was very easy to get off course. you would be better off pre planning and setting your own way points then try and follow those. best bet know where it ends and make your own path. not sure how this app tracks the route so poorly but Endomondo clocked it at 11 miles. so some prepared for a farther distance. for me personally after 8 miles of constantly being in and trekking over boulder fields was glad to get out of the canyon. I'd say it's a good one timer, doubt I would do it again so many more better ones around..

Excellent easy hike. I'm very gradual walk up the mountain to the hieroglyphs. Some rocky areas but overall very gradual and very nice. Extremely scenic and the hieroglyphs are good. The closer you get to the waterfall and hieroglyph area the more difficult the walk becomes but it's well worth making the hike. Lots and lots of indigenous vegetation and cacti. We thoroughly enjoyed it. The only downside is it's heavily used. Probably better during the week then on the weekends.
