Excellent trail for a scenic view of the Indian Canyon area. A strenuous hike with the first mile pretty aggressively climbing switchbacks, then the remaining 2 miles a shallower climb to the marker post. At the marker post, follow the trail to the right about 1/4 mile to the stream. It's a great place to have lunch and cool down before reversing your path for the decent.

This was an excellent hike. It doesn't take too long, but is uphill most of the way. The views get better with each step.

Trail head is behind the trading post, on the opposite side of the Palm Canyon trailhead.
