Amazing little hike!! It's short, flat, and easy. Don't let the view from the parking lot deceive you. The hike drops into a beautiful sandstone canyon filled with petroglyphs and flowers. The walls echo the voices of time, and the river flows with the magic that only the colorado can contain. Check out the alcove near the river, but don't stop their. The views of the canyon from the river are icing on the cake.
