Great hike. Very moderate. Doable in a couple hours. Great views at the end. The rocks are very beautiful.

We did this as part of the Gower Gulch hike and it made for a nice excursion. Very steep in one area but otherwise quite doable. Hike it at sunset or sunrise for an even better experience; this will also avoid the heat and a lot of hikers.

Fairly difficult at one point where trail takes a pretty vertical climb. A pretty canyon land-esque hike but if you're going to do Golden Canyon you might as well do the rest of Gower Gulch for a better hike.
