Definitely a hot hike in the summer as most of the trail is in sun. On a hot summer day, the reflective heat from the canyon walls and the river can easily overheat your body. Make sure to bring lots of water.

Nice hike but there are lots of other trails it runs into so it can be confusing. Would definitely do this trail again!

Easy, not moderate
Steep climb going back to the highway, but short so not so bad
Secluded enough that it didn't feel crowded even with some folks on the trail
Nice views from above, small creek crossings along the way, so so waterfall
Decent hike so giving this 3⭐
