Nice trail. We went clockwise, getting most of the elevation out of the way at the beginning. The trail meanders up and around lots of cool rock formations. Not overly crowded, even during the very crowded new year holiday. 4 stars instead of 5 because the last leg runs pretty close to the road so you can see and hear quite a few cars.
Beautiful hike. Parallels road at the end. Mostly just a walk but go in between boulders which you can climb pretty high when you get there. Easy to find. Nice desolate trail w no one on it on Memorial Day weekend. Fabulous. There is no elevation climb regardless of what I've seen written. Maybe a few hundred feet but if so its gradual so you don't notice. Beginning can be a bit tough as its like walkin on a beach (uneven sand) so the trail is a harder walk but nothing too difficult. More annoying than anything but it's brief. How can you be annoyed when you have this landscape around you?! Easily marked. Def a do over!
This is a great day hike. Lots of views to enjoy. I think it is more like 6.5 miles. Did not see anyone else on the trail today. The other trails in the park are very crowded this time of year.
