This is a great little half day hike, but be warned, there is some scrabbling over the rocks in 3 places that may not be possible for all hikers. I took my 45 pound dog with me and there was one section of rocks I did have to drag him down (a long 10' slick "shoot" if you will). I do not recommend you take your pooch. The views are nice though, and the canyon to the north is beautiful. Tons of rock climbers in the area.

We found out about this area from a bartender @ Sin City Brewing who said she walks her dogs here all the time. Great route. Down in the wash, you'll get to a couple spots where you might wonder, "where to from here?" but you can easily find your way forward. There were a lot of people bouldering on the east side of the loop just before returning to the parking lot. Fun spot to hangout at the end.

Scrambling and semi-agility required at times, but not too intense. Beautiful hike. 2 hours or so.

This trail leads you up a wash that involves some scrambling with engaging and fun moves. You are shaded from the sun for a lot of the hike (depending on the time of year) it has several pools of water you come to that requires a little adventuring to work around. I recommend you start east and work up the wash instead of coming down it. Overall it is fun and EASY! It Took me less than two hours and I loved every minute of it.
