Easy, paved trail with great views of the canyon if you don't want to climb down the stairs of the Island Trail.

Not dog friendly. Signs all over saying NO DOGS. Waste of time.

Very easy and flat hike along the canyon rim. There were great views of the cliff dwellings looking down into the canyon. Near the end of the hike near the Visitor's Center, there were some pueblo and pithouse ruins.

Cool for the scenery and experience but not a big hike or anything. This was interesting and the view of some valleys was interesting.

The archeological emphasis of the Sinagua people was the main attraction for us. The trail is easy and mostly paved. Nearby, the stairs down and up for the Walnut Canyon "Island" trail are manageable for most folks, but deter some..

Unfortunately, when we were there in May 2016, Island Trail was closed trail improvements. Nevertheless, the Rim Trail and the film presentation at the center were interesting enough that we will come back when Island Trail is ready. So I'm not going to knock the rating as I did not check on any closing before we came.
