My wife and I hiked the Sandy’s Canyon Trail today with our daughter’s dog, Wilbur. Though this trail is rated as easy it should be rated as moderate because of the decline/incline of the path with rocks and rock outcroppings. Other than that the trail was easy. Nice views of the Canyon walls. The trail was made up of loose dirt, crushed lava rock mixed with dirt, rocks and rock outcroppings. The trail was mainly used by dogs and their owners. We only seen one person with no dog the rest of the people had dogs including us as well. There are other intersecting trails so one could make this hike longer.

Great hike with beautiful views. Be warned however, there were so many off-leash dogs (not close to their owners at all) that made this hike more stressful than enjoyable despite the leash laws.
