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.

Shorter trail with a lot of beautiful sights. We encountered several cows along the way which our little girls loved.

Nice scenery, fun to have cows all around you. If your looking for easy, this is about as easy as they get. Parking is across the highway from the trailhead.

Took the family for a nice 2 mile round trip hike. My 3 year old rode his strider bike and loved it. There is some beautiful rock formations. Good shade too.

Visited Keyhole Sink with wife on what would have been mom's 71st birthday. Keyhole was one of her favorite places to visit and it was our last hike together back in 2013 and it was a beautiful day with mom's presence all around.
