wild flowers

The wildflower blooms and snowmelt filling the creeks in spring may only be surpassed by the winter beauty of ice and snow in the canyon. Fall colors are spectacular, thanks to the ash, aspens, and willows. Brilliant purples of the western redbud contrast sharply against the green pines, mahogany, and junipers when early summer/late spring takes hold.

Liked the trail but make sure you keep this map open on have a relied upon back up trail is difficult to navigate due to path not being to clear, but if you hike u know what to look for great spots for pictures and resting to enjoy sights of red rock, bring plenty of water just in case and use off! Lot of flying insects

As others indicated, "trail markings" are not to be relied upon all that much. Natural navigation, footprints, compass, etc. definitely the way to go. Passed by a couple of solo hikers (like me) on my way in, as they were finishing up. Both with light packs. On the way out, a family of 4 with ZERO gear. Really? Veered off the "path" and blazed my own trail, hiking deeper into the canyone. I loved the solitude here!

Terrible trail marking. We ended up way off course several times. We had kiddos with us, so it was a serious bummer. Working our way back across desert landscape was no fun.

Wonderful afternoon hike. The views of the mountains on the way in are spectacular. Very nice places along the creek to pull up a rock and enjoy a snack in the shade of oak trees. This is the perfect trail for a late afternoon hike.

Trail was beautiful with great approaching view of the mountain range. Although it was poorly marked as we hiked farther up. Really neat watering hole oasis at the top.

a fun little trail. follow the trail all the way around past the back bend to find the creek. we did some scrambling down to a very small section of the creek, fun, but the better creek views were ahead where we stopped for lunch! lots of small trails intersect with this one making it easy to veer off course a bit. would do it again!
