HikingGreat!

We loved this trail, lots of cool rocks to scramble up onto and an awesome little hole in the wall at the end that the super-adventurous can climb INTO

Really enjoyed the hike, but the trail gets spotty towards the end. Could use some better markers! It was very peaceful, silent and low traffic in late afternoon

This was a great trail for the fall temperatures. We thought it was closer to moderate than easy but not too challenging. Interesting combination of sandy desert single file trail and also lots of climbing up and over rocks, to the canyon shaded by trees and beautiful rock walls. Almost no water this time of year.

This was a fun trail and we did it on a day that was not too hot. Spectacular bird life if you're a birder. The end is amazing and I'd love to see it in the spring when there's water.

I loved this trail. I did it immediately following Serpent's Trail on a 95 degree day and was so grateful for the varied landscape after the slab crawl on the first chunk of this hike. I was also the only person on this trail on a Thursday afternoon. A flashy collared lizard came out for a photo shoot. The canyon itself is large and impressive with a wallside stream, when there's enough water. My voice doesn't project well but I imagine the acoustics are stellar. At the very end there was a brown pond. A hydration oasis for the wearied traveler to cover themselves in mud for a cool-down. Thankfully I still had water in my pack and did not indulge in this surprise spa day. On the way out right before the trailhead marker for the split, I ran into a man from the archeology club who showed me some rock carvings. What a cool way to end a hot hike.

An interesting mix of geological features. This moderate trail offers several different landscapes to explore. Fewer people than the popular Serpent's Trail across the parking lot.

compared to other trails in this park it's a hike to nowhere. no real views and a bit of a grind on a hot day.

Didn’t get to finish due to the amount of time that I had, but I’ll be going back and finishing it! Coming out there was a bunch of bighorn rams very close to the trail.

pretty short and uneventful. I'd opt to continue on the main trail and do old Gordon's instead. I haven't found old gordons on all trails yet but its marked at the trailhead map in the parking lot.

First to Review

Varied terrain (dirt to rock to sand) was tough on the knees and feet, but interesting hike. No one else was there
