We do this as a loop. Once past trailhead you drop into the desert and won't see signs of civilization the duration. Our loop we have a fairly good elevation gain. A cautionary note this area can become very confusing lots of canyons and valley's and peaks. I would run a gps with backtracking capability if you are not very sure of your ability.

Easy to Moderate hike for sure, the beginning is fairly easy and there are a couple more difficult parts in the hike. 1 good stretch of incline about halfway through. Definitely would be more challenging in the heat of the summer. It's a nice short (2-3hr) hike in these winter months. Very limited shade. Watch the cairns as it is easy to lose trail.

This is a fun trail but is hard to follow and hard to find. People have erected small caerns but mostly it is by memory and guessing. Lots of variations. We usually start by the wash and take a right on the small trail after the steep downhill on the gravel road. Then we follow that until we are around the "mountain". We usually hike this as a loop. Beautiful scenery and usually not many people at all. Be careful and bring a car with 4-wheel drive.

Easy trail with many variations of you feel like jumping off the trail. Quiet and quite beautiful at sunrise. Slot canyon is worth the drive alone, we plan on making it all around to the grotto during rainy season!

We hiked 6 mile loop (this is our third trip . The trail is not marked other than cairns ,making this navigation difficult. That being said. When you are out in the wilderness that's what you see. No agricultural fields, highways etc. so it is beautiful. Enjoy the beauty but be aware
