Incredible to walk among the rock formations. Did the Loop counterclockwise. The first part was very scenic on the decent which was great for photos. Having the slight accent at the end was a good choice. Would be beautiful in the spring with water running.

Nice hike. Awesome geology. Quite a bit of past burn evidence. Didn't see anyone else on the trail on a Wednesday evening.

I would not call it easy but more moderately difficult, especially on a hot day. We saw Coatimundi, and lizards on the trail. Saw bear and turkeys on the road out. Great hike for the occasional hiker!

Unique sightseeing. Starts really easy and gets only a little strenuous. Went in mid July and it was a nice hike even at 92 degrees.

This trail is absolutely stunning!!! We hiked this with our five kids, ages 12,9,8,6,4. We went clockwise. The gravel on the trail was very loose and slippery for the kids and a good portion was only a foot and a half wide with a cliff side drop off on one of the edges. We have hiked with the kids all across the country, and our littlest can hike 7 miles himself. With that said, this trail was terrifying to me with my children. The loose gravel in combination with the narrow trail was stressful beyond belief. We did all make it, and will go back to the park, but we will not do that trail with the kids again.

A little windy today but beautiful scenery the entire way. We stared on the grotto side and ended with the gradual climb. Will definitely come back to this park!!

Our group of 5 hiked the trail counterclockwise in March. The grotto area was spectacular and the views all along the hike were breathtaking. I would call it a moderate hike for us 60+, occasional hikers. We were glad we had poles and plenty of water.
