I really enjoyed my time here. it was my first solo venture, and I felt it couldn't have been a better experience. most of the trail was easily mapped and accessible, and I would rate this trail as a moderate didficulty because it was not very challenging as far as elevation. I will definitely be back.

I hiked this on a cloudy December day. It was secluded, quiet, and peaceful. There are some nice views from overlooks along the South Rim trail. Much of the rest of the scenery is somewhat monotonous. I encountered a few deer, birds of prey, and a family of hogs. Portions of the Boundary Loop are muddy and require hiking boots. Most of the elevation change is along the Boundary Loop. Trail marking is overall very good. The whole walk took around 4 hours.

It was a great trail. Easy to follow but I’m still glad I had my map downloaded!

Starts out easy, but coming back from the water is where it gets tough. Very nice trail!

Great hike
