We marked the start of this trail once we got out of Banshee Canyon and walked in the opposite direction of the rings. We didn't do the entire trail because the sun was setting, but we thoroughly enjoyed the part that we were able to do. The part we did do was very well-marked with ground stakes.
it is easy walking ... watch out for the horse poop. We encountered only two other people on the trail, but we did see a jackrabbit and as we returned to the parking lot, we saw free-range horses that were kind enough to submit to our taking their pictures.
Definitely a trail worth doing.
Very easy to follow trail. The rings were a nice touch but not difficult to overcome unless you have bad balance. Wish this was longer. Nice quick hike!
did a portion of this as part of a combo hike walking the Barber Peak-Ring Loop. walked an hour or two...3-4mi, then turned around and completed the Barber Peak Loop trail.
