Definitely a good hike - wouldn't recommend taking a dog as it's super rocky. Took our German shepherd mix and her paws were raw by the end of it.

Everyone that mentions the word boring should have looked into this area further. We climbed Doorjamb mountain and crossed over to Loder Peak. Came down an avalanche run out and walked the dry valley between the peaks until we reached the Yura Creek Canyon area. It was a long day. Roughly an 8 hour trek with two dogs. Some hairy situations and was totally amazing. Anything but "boring". Not only amazing views up top on the summits but super amazing walking thru the Canyon. Super cool all around. Put in the extra effort and explore!!!!!!!

Fun little trek thru a canyon suitable for wide range age groups. Loved making my way thru the water and around rocks and logs (did this in June when water level was higher so unsure what the canyon is like later summer months). Short trek and would rate as easy not moderate. After the canyon you enter a dry wide rock river bed that I think loops around to back side of Loder peak but we turned around after several kms as it did get a bit boring, although beautiful surroundings!

As stated, the highlight is the narrow canyon. If only it could have had more of that part. Outside of that area, it got a little boring.

Went mid July and the water bed was very dried up so the end waterfall wasn't flowing. Would go back next year in June to try again. Very cool at the start though walking through a narrow piece with water.

Took 3 hours with a nice few breaks, total from car was 8.5km.

Very easy hike but the breathtaking scenery is worth it. The rock walls and small waterfalls are beautiful.

Did this hike in 4 hours with many breaks and 4 kids age 7-14. Canyon was very exciting and enjoyable for the kids. The upper pools and rock slide were fun for the kids to cool off in on the hot day. The rock bed can be a bit unsteady so make sure you are careful, water shoes were very helpful.

I would recommend waiting till the water in the creek goes down so it's easier to hike through.
The other option is to walk along the creek, on the cliff above it. But we found it was hard to follow a proper trail because of the flood damage.
We crossed through the mountain to connect onto Door Jamb to find a clearer path.

We would go back and see this trail at another time.
But right now, I wouldn't recommend it.
