Hiked on March 24. A little bit of snow/ice at the top, but it can be avoided. Great views throughout. Last couple miles are a killer! Highly recommend the two spurs (canyon viewpoint and caves)

Such an amazing experience to see the full scale of the canyon! Impossible to get off course so all you have to do is enjoy and conserve energy for the climb back up.

Loved this hike, but we had to cut it short due to rain coming. It's a difficult hike, not for families with young kids as there are several precarious spots along the trail. Of course the views are fantastic!
