I would rate this trial easy, but with some elevation. it was unclear where the trail ended, so I may not have made it to the end. nearby Calico Tank trail was so much better. nothing to see on the trail you cannot see from the road.

Nice hike. More "moderate" than "easy" due to the uphill climb. Path on app did not match the official park trail.

Good trail with kids. About the right distance and inclination to be doable and a little challenging. Takes about 2h from parking lot.

This is a moderately difficult out and back trail which gives nice views of the surrounding area. Portions of the trail are a bit rough, but for the most part is easily trafficked gravel. We saw plenty of kids and pets successfully completing the trail. Views at the end are great and you can kind of see a bit of everything that Red Rock Canyon has to offer in one short hike. We combined this with the white rock/la madre springs loop for a total of ~10 miles.
