The visitor center is closed so you can not get to trail. So you can only view from the top and can not travel down the path.

It is a national park so be prepared to pay $16 per individual over the age of 15 if you don't have the national parks pass.

Lovely short hike, easy enough for our 5 and 9 yr old. we got the junior ranger badge guide before which made it even more interesting. ranger back in the station was very good with the kids afterwards talking them through the ranger badge and swearing them in!!

Very nice touristy stroll on a paved path through a nicely vegetated high desert area. Great views of the canyon.

A very very easy short trail if you can can even call this a trail!

Very easy trail that anyone can do. A very slight hill but very easy. Great view of the canyon. There are some ruins that you can see on the trail.

Super easy and scenic trail. This is a must do for anyone visiting Flagstaff. We were lucky to get there at closing and the gals let us through. A ranger went behind the people they let go to make sure the trail was empty and was so informative and was such a treat.
