We hiked the Sandstone Canyon trail over the weekend and found the views to be speactacular down by the creek that flows through the park. We took the trail in a clockwise fashion and took the White Connector cutoff which resulted in a 2.7 mile hike accordiing to my GPS. The first part of the trail isn't all that amazing (visually) but once you get down into the valley the bluffs and rock formations are just beautiful. We would like to go back when we have more time and really explore all of the beautiful sights along the creek.

We did the loop counterclockwise which saved the best for last. Look for the first small shelter on the paved portion and you’re good to go. Really enjoyed the hike. Took us about an hour and a half.

Great hike. Lots to see on the trail, but the best views are near the trailhead.

Very nice area with some beautiful rock formations along the creek bottom. There are a ton of little offshoot trails here and there but it was always easy to find the main trail. Park was pretty busy but well worth the visit.

Nice hike -lots of diversity but not marked very clearly in some areas. We were glad we were recording our hike so we were able to figure out what direction to go in some of the places (and we still missed a section) :-)
