Perfect trail for our 6 and 4 year olds. Well marked and awesome to see the petroglyphs at the end!

Petroglyphs were amazing. Nice little box canyon with a pretty little aspen grove.

We walked here in mid-August, 2017 during the Monsoon season. The trail was teeming with flowers; and there were quite a few mushrooms to be seen. It was a nice walk in the woods. And the box canyon called Keyhole Sink is pretty cool. Look for the reasonably numerous hieroglyphs. And, perhaps, sit by the little pond and see what critters show up. We felt that this trail is a little known gem -- particularly if you are really not in shape for a "real" hike.
