No ladders on this hike. Seldom used trail. Great for dogs because there are no ladders.

Not a very well traveled hike so not to many foot prints to follow. Easy to veer off in the wrong direction as it is not marked as well as the ladder hike. Only hiked in 1.8 miles. As the canyon narrowed it looked like there was an impassable rock slide so I turned back. Could be that I was in the wrong canyon!!! Beautiful majestic canyon walls against the blue sky but probably won’t do it again.
