We visited this trail in between storms. So we couldn't ascend to the top to complete the hike, we were not prepared for the 6" of snow which occurs after the first ascent. With that said, what we did hike was moderate. The hike was increasing elevation at a steady pace, nothing crazy. Beautiful views of the desert, cool rock formations. We didn't stay to long as snow flurries started to fall and it was cold.

This is a beautiful loop. However, the trail is very, very steep in stretches, covered in loose rock which is a real slip hazard. With proper switch-backs, would have been 5-stars.

One of the most amazing trails I have ever been on! You can continue at the top of the loop if you wish to get more elevation and beautiful views. Easy to follow trail and so close to town!

This hike was VERY steep at parts, and the entire first half of the hike was uphill. The Trail was also hard to find at times and could use better signage/trail markers. I would classify it as “difficult” as the “moderate” rating felt a bit misleading. The views and rock formations were amazing though and made the tough climb worth it.
