New to hiking. First “moderate” level hike my husband and I went on. And we loved it. Good scenery. All in all a great trip. Very peaceful. We went in late October. So the temperature was almost perfect. Not too hot not too cold. Definitely recommend. We were tired though, so warning to anyone else new to hiking.

As others have stated, the trail is a little confusing at first as it is not clearly marked. Besides that all went well except the turn for the little jutting part of the trail is easy to miss.
Some of the signage seems oddly placed also.
Still, I enjoyed it. A few spots with some inclines that get your attention.

The trail starts out confusing as you start in a drainage area where blazes are far and few between; good news is the pathway is fairly obvious and well beaten. Primative campsites are available, the first campsite you come across has a standing shelter but the further you get on the trail the less likely you are to see trash and what not.

beautiful hike, definitely moderate level. lots of long steep stretches. the blazes are sometimes very far apart and the signage can be confusing, but it's a beautiful hike through interesting territory.

As others have said, it doesn't get too scenic until the last couple miles which is also a part of the canyon loop trail. I suggest taking the short 3 mile loop if you just want to see the canyon, you won't miss anything if you don't take the red blaze trail.

Nice trail with some cool campsite along the way, but the great views only come towards the last couple miles and when it joins with the white blazed trail. They recommend 4 hours for the hike, but my out of shape self, while taking many breaks only took about 2.5-3 hours.
