such amazing views. early morning is probably best for this hike because there's very little to no shade. also take plenty of water. but don't let that stop you from going. it's completely worth the hike.

This is one of my favorite places to hike in the valley because it's usually quiet in the canyon and the views are so beautiful. I've done this trail at least 5 times and always want to bring someone new with me to experience it. Always have more than enough food and water when doing this hike because there's lots of inclines and very little shade.

was a nice hike, nothing hard about the trail, nice gradual hills, nothing strenuous, nice scenery, little stream added to make for a nice walk in the park!!
not much shade, so come summer, it'll be hot!!

Awesome hike including a great drive in, parking can be tough but there is a lot right next to the trailhead which is also a RV/camping/restaurant parking. Great views and well marked trail however, when you come to the location that contains what looks like an old foundation with a fireplace nestled in a cave do not go straight go right. If you go straight you'll eventually find yourself overshooting into the stream but there are cairns to backtrack on.

This is arduous but so worth it! The views around every turn change and amaze. Many flowers in bloom, but in a week or two this Trail will be ablaze in color.

Amazing views! You can see weavers needle and way down into the canyons. And if you don't feel like making the whole trek it's fine! There are so many viewing points along the way!

Beautiful trail! Tough at the start due to a constant climb but once we got past that we were rewarded with amazing views.
