My wife and I had a great time doing this hike via Phoneline Trl. and up into Hutch's Pool. Amazing views the whole time.

Informative visitor's center. Lots of fun excursion trails to take and bathrooms along the way. You can ride the tram and hop on & off anytime for $10 adults and less for kids. We just went up for an hour then had to turn around.

Are you able to backpack here for a night?

I don't know how many times we did this road, 3.7 miles one way to the end. if you want more exercise, you can climb up to the phone line at the end of the tram, you will get around 9 miles total. not too bad though.

Terrific day out. Recommend taking the tram up to the end of the road (stop 9) this makes the hike about 8.5 miles rnd trip. Superb views in all directions - wicked good wild flowers in late March.
Crowd was scary at the trailhead, but most fell off at the first junction heading back down the canyon to the visitor center.
