This is a great day/afternoon hike that offers an incredibly diverse view. We ended up doing this hike, per recommendation of a local, on our way out of page, AZ. Cottonwood canyon road is an easy dirt road that can take you close to the “head” of this trail. Note* there is know Trail sign that will let you know where to start. We parked at the junction of cotton wood canyon and the other dirt road/path that comes from the east. If you’ve driven up to hackleberry canyon trail, you can hike from there as well you just have to head south to get to the point where you hike up to yellow rock. If you can make your way to the base of the mountain (through river bed (maybe an inch of spotty water when we went in mid feb), you can kinda see a dirt-rock path that’s been carved out that heads straight up. It’s not scary (unless you’re afraid of heights) and this trail doesn’t have steep drop offs- id say its a fairly friendly trail. There is loose rock and dirt heading up/down from the creek bed so just be careful there, other than that it was easy and you really can’t miss yellow rock! It’s like exploring another planet. We did the trail in 2 hours, hiked up in less than 20/25 min and enjoyed our time on the rock. Saw some antelope and some mountain lion foot prints! Pretty cool!
