Definitely rewarding getting into the canyon! We had a rental car, and had to stop a mile+ from the actual trailhead (due to needing clearance/ road not being maintained) but once we found it, enjoyed the hike! Crossing through the creek wasn’t bad today, water ran just below my knee, and I’m about 5’4”. The ascent out of the canyon definitely kept the heart rate up, but went quickly. My Fitbit clocked in at 1.4 miles to the temple from the trail head. Happy hiking! :)
