Great short hike on a crystal blue February. Highly recommend for the great rock formations. Disney has to have this place in mind when they developed the Cars moving and ride. #LiveLoveWanderTribe

Nice quick hike. Stay left and you get to go through a slot with a good sized cave. with a steep dry waterfall at the end. The slot canyons on the right are impressive but require some climbing to get into. I scrambled up the first 8-10 ft. ledge only to find another steeper section with less foot/hand holds. To sketchy in my opinion to go further without gear. On the hike up the canyon we stayed to the right and then took the left fork on the way back. (Right turn since we were headed in the opposite direction).
