The trail is difficult in some spots but for the most part it is easy walking..A few great rock formations and a natural bridge are among the highlights..Trail is marked well until it comes to a sudden. turn ..we got turned around a couple times but no big deal. Definitely worth your time to hike.

Several different trails to choose from. Not too difficult. Enjoyable day. Don't go after a good rain, lots of slick spots with steep drop offs.
