This is an absolutely wonderful trail. However, do not be fooled by the labeling of moderate. The hike in is straight down and the ascent back up is nothing less than hard. With that said, go for it! You won’t be disappointed. The views are awesome and you won’t be hampered by first time hikers (like so many other trails). Bring plenty of H2O and something to nibble on as you will need both. Happy hiking.

One of the few peaceful hikes in the park. First few miles are flat and easy but coming back out is just as difficult as most other trails down into the canyon, especially since the trail isn’t as well maintained. Watch your footing and consider bringing hiking poles.

Also, driving to the gate requires a high clearance vehicle but you can park at the sign that says 1.4 miles to Waldron trail and add another 2.8 miles to your trip.

the trail takes u away from the river. this sub canyon is at one point a flat area with trees. used it to get to dripping springs. the trail is a bit of a mess in certain pnts. it's fairly peaceful leaving bright angle crowds behind
