Super pretty! Lots of places to go off trail and explore. Sometimes you can see cranes in the water! The sandstone at the end is fun to climb and hang out for a bit.

Tons of people on this trail, especially since the trailhead starts on the back end of a campground that is usually busy anyways. So be prepared to see a lot of people, and as an out-and-back trail it's even busier, naturally. There are lots of muddy spots, and if you have younger children then slow the pace down. But you can't beat how beautiful this trail is and the arch at the end is amazing! If you're looking for a quieter trail, head over to the RRG.
