Terrific views, wild horses, and a short gnarly climb/scramble up to the top to overlook Grand Junction. This trail is steep and can get hot on summer afternoons, depending on the time of year you may want to do this hike in the morning.

Start early! No later than 8 am cause it gets HOT with no shade or water sources. But the hike is beautiful, immediate satisfaction! Highly recommend

STEEP!! If you're looking for a leg workout this is the trail for you. Keep in mind you're hiking in a desert with no shade, you can go during the day but I recommend going early in the morning 5-6 am. Not for children, lots of ledges steep climbing.

Tough trail but the view is worth it! Also, keep an eye out for wild horses.

Steep incline/decline in a some places. Quite a bit of climbing over large boulders. Excellent endurance hike!
