Just an absolutely gorgeous and remote spot. The hike is short and easy and if rafters are launching from the boat ramp you can get some great pictures of them coming down the Green and into the Gates. I recommend being there just a little after sunrise when the light hits the canyon wall. Gorgeous. .

This is a very easy and short hike that starts at the end of the campground. The views are amazing and is well worth the visit if in the area.
