Super fun & challenging!! Your thighs will hurt, coming back feels harder than going up! Take a light lunch to have at the top! Beautiful view to have while eating lunch!

Great hike!!! Great view through it & at the end!

Beautiful trail but it will kick you butt. Carried surface from sandy to rocky. This is a moderately difficult run run. Make sure you take water. Easy to follow and you won’t get lost.

Great hike! Starts off pretty easy but gets challenging having to scramble up some rocks. The descent was far more difficult, wear shoes with good tread, and expect to slip and slide a bit on your way down. Bring lots of water and get ready for great views at the top!

Killer hike. Up to the top with some breaks in 1:38. Took the "short" way back down through the steeper section/wash. Weather was great for 6am start. Wouldn't consider doing it any other way, though. Saw people heading up on our way back, nope. High temps going up this one would be torture.

Trail is difficult to follow at times. As you approach the end of the trail some climbing is required, but there was a small pool of water at the top.

Such a fun hike! It can get a little busy in the early afternoon, so I suggest getting to the trail a little bit early.

Amazing trail! Highly recommend, some tight spaces. Fun short trail with lots of cool picture spots.

Very difficult to finished.. but it’s very rewarding when you reached the top., beautiful view.. got a bit lost on the way down .. lol!! Great cardio work out....

A very easy hike and a lot of the trail is shaded so it was nice and cool. Sometimes the water at the end is an actual waterfall, sometimes it's like a small sprinkle.

It was awesome

Amazing views of the red rocks and uneven, rocky surfaces made for a challenging hike with great photo ops. Paths could definitely use more signage.

Trail not well marked but did make to the waterfall

was a fun challenge. trail was easy to follow going up...trickier going down especially at the beginning. poles helped a lot going up. take gloves for some sharp rock scrambling if you can.

Great trail! Would consider it moderate as the theirs lots of rocks. Trail is not super defined but it’s very easy to follow. I did this trail round trip in 90 mins! Super pretty, love the view

The drive to the second parking lot can be a little rough. There is zero shade but other than that it was a nice trail with good views.

Beautiful views. No shade. 7 lizards

Wow! Great hike. Started off uphill for a little bit but then its flat and down hill the rest of the way. Didnt take as much time as expected to get all the way in. Found a perfect spot by the creek...we sat down, played in the water. Overall a great time. Only reason I wouldnt give it 5 stars is because it was alot busier than I wouldve liked. But I will definitely be visiting again

go

nice accent to the top. never had issues with the trail, the orange and white markers were helpful. a good challenge on the way up but more going down with the shale. take your time or you will fall! I did this hike early and was first to summit. not too many other hikers on this trail on a Weds. amazing views at the top!

Seems easy to use

Great trail with very pretty views of the surrounding Red rock canyon. A lot of the hike is exposed so be prepared to be in the sun. Not too difficult- moderate is a true ranking. Even the drive to the trail head is gorgeous. Would definitely recommend!

Thoroughly enjoyable and easy
A bit difficult to find the start of the trail or maybe I’m just stupid! Parking was also a pain.
Please be careful - the heat even in the morning is overbearing at points. Take plenty of water and sunscreen.

very fun
