Was a good hike. Beautiful scenery, but really need to warn people that the trail from south part to north is virtually nonexistent. Pretty much had to cross country through rock field to find north route, and even then it was pretty much pick and choose. Enjoyed it, but 8.8 miles and 4 hours turned into almost 12 miles and over 5 hours. Also saw some hieroglyphics at the 4 1/2mile mark up the hill on the left.

Lovely place to explore. Though the wash is easy enough to follow on the southern portion of the loop, the northern section is primarily route finding- don't expect a trail. Not steep at all.
