We really enjoyed this trail. The views were spectacular. We ended up parking about 2.15 miles from the beginning of the actual trail, but the extra 4+ miles were still enjoyable. There was water in the canyon but it was pretty low (it still made for some cool scenery). The bug situation was pretty intense because of the standing water.

Getting to the TH was the most difficult part, we made it within a mile of the TH, but after you leave battle axe rd the "road" is just following the creek bed and so there are some washed out bits. Overall the trail was stunningly gorgeous and well worth the extra walking. There was water in the creek, and honestly I think that might make the difference between it being beautiful and a bit punishing.

Awesome trail!! The dirt road isn’t hard to navigate and our little Honda made it as far as she could. We stopped driving about 0.5 miles from the start of the hike and the walk was not bad at all. Plus there were gorgeous mountains surrounding you the whole way! The start of the trail is slightly hidden, but you’ll recognize it as the only viable trail at the end of the dirt road. It’s definitely overgrown and the trail can be a bit hard to follow at times, but there are stacked rocks that work as markers to guide the way. It ended with crisp cold water and beautiful scenery. Definitely will hike again!!!

Fun little trail. A little over grown, but the stacked rocks helped. Parked near a yellow gate right where the trail starts (4x4 to get there). A couple signs to get you to trail head. Not sure where the trail ended, but I stopped at a little waterfall that looked like a water slide with a deep pool at the end. Doesn’t suggest sliding down the water slide, kinda hurt lol.

Beautiful hike, especially with the wildflowers blooming at the end of March. We parked where AllTrails showed the hike started, right outside a barbed wire gate. In reality you can drive through the gate and park another half mile down where the trail actually starts. The trail was fairly easy to follow with stone piles marking the way. We stopped about two miles in at a small pool when it got harder to figure out where to go, but saw some people continue on.

Pretty hard to find the trail in many spots after the rains this year. The brush is very overgrown. Great views as always though.

Very hard to find the trail because there really is no trail. You just walk through the canyon. To get there, stay on the dirt road for about 4 miles. Once you descend a steep and rocky stretch of dirt road, you will see a 1ft x 1ft white sign. The sign said something like "pack it in, pack it out". Go to the right of this sign. There will be a trail marker about 100 yds down that road. That's where the "trail" starts. There are some points of interests like in the pics. The canyon looks great. We went in December and there wasn't too much water.
