Great short hike, sinkhole is dry though so that was a bummer. Beautiful cliffs though!

Very short and easy hike. Be careful of bees! They like the mud during monsoon season and are pretty much everywhere. Make sure to check out the Hieroglyphs!

It is very muddy right now and the waterfall was just trickling, but it was still a nice hike.

This was an awesome hike today! There was some snow on the ground, but made things beautiful. Had to cross small creek in a couple of places, but our family loves these kind of adventures. I have a 14 to and 9 to and was great for the. Trail is marked well.

Beautiful hike ! Water is flowing from the recent snowfall. Wear good mud boots if going soon. The Petroglyphs are always spectacular to see!!

Lots of skeeters going on but very pretty short little hike. The petroglyphs were really cool!

Easy hike. The waterfall obviously is seasonal as it was dry when I went. This would be great for kids. If I’m ever around at the right time I would come back as the snow is melting and in the afternoon for the best sun being behind you.

Nice quiet trail. I did this in January so there’s a bit of snow and it’s pretty muddy in spots. But well maintained. Cute little box Canyon at the end. Nice short and easy trail.

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.
