Good canopy and cool canyon bottom make for an excellent hike. Trail is a loose red powder. Some rocky parts where the trail crosses an old dry / seasonal creek bed. DO WATCH OUT FOR BEARS.

I did this with my 3 yo and 6 yo. The trail is easy to follow and easy for my kids to do. The trail is very well marked too. The trail itself wasn't anything too spectacular, but the climb just beyond the end of the maintained trail was great! My 3 yo was too small, and I too novice a hiker, to comfortably take her up there. But my 6 yo climbed to the top twice! Absolutely breathtaking view. Also easily wore both kids on my back in a carrier.

Keep going past the trail and climb a bit for the best views of Bell Rock and Courthouse.

Super easy trail! Not too many people. About half way through if you look to the right, you will see a natural arch alongside the canyon wall (but you'll miss it if you aren't looking). To get to it, there will be a crossing across the wash with a pile of rocks.

The best part is the end of the trail. Keep going past the sign, and climb up along the canyon wall for some of the most amazing views!

Easy and quite nice to the end of the trail. Climb up the Canyon and you will get a spectacular view of the Court house and Bell Rock.

Easy trail with a little adventure at the end to climb to the shelf and overhang. Great place for shade and a snack.
