the hike for the first 3 to 4km is rather boring because you're on a service road but once you find the real trail head and get into the switch backs it's much more interesting. we did see one family who biked down the service road. and then ditched their bikes at the trail head. we brought the dogs and they had no problems with the hike. the magic is when you get to climb through the dried up river and see how the water has eroded the area. we had some time on out hands and decided to see how far down the river we could go which required a bit of scrambling but nothing major. we eventually got to a point where the river drops maybe 50 meters (which would have been stunning back when water flowed through the area). by that point we turned back up and refound the trail.

This hike is all about the destination. Start at the little elbow trail head and follow the path to the right along the river. We did this hike with small children (but it's long) once out of the campground the first 5K in and back is a mostly flat gravel road along the river. It would have been more enjoyable for the kids if we biked it to save time. You could easily use a chariot on this section. The river views make the road more enjoyable, there is spots to stop and throw in rocks. Once you reach the end of the 5K you will reach a stream (do not cross). You can park your bikes/chariots here. Congrats! you've reached the trail head. The trail goes straight up some steep switch backs for about 20 minutes (do not walk up the stream, the trail head is right before up in the woods). Once you're at the top walk for another 10 minutes and once you're back in the trees the canyon is down the hill to your left. It's not marked but if you can see all the rocks below you're headed in the right direction. It was well worth the walk to get to this awesome location, very secluded, a narrow canyon with lots of climbing opportunities to explore, go as far in as you are comfortable with. The kids loved it! I would have given it 5 stars if we biked.

This trail start is a good 3 K walk from the parking lot. The start is inside a campground and it starts going uphill and feels like it never stops. Some real scrambling and very stretchy on one mountainside. Yes the views are amazing from the top but it’s a lot of work and a bit dangerous for my liking to get to the top. Much nicer hikes around this area to do. This is my least favourite.
