Loved this hike. Had some difficulty climbing up some rocks, but the petroglyphs at the top were worth I️t! New favorite local hike!

Good idea to stop at the ranger station at the trail head and get the skinny on the trail. Be prepared to walk the entire way through soft sand and pebbles (adds challenge...like walking through soft sand at the beach) because the trail is entirely through the wash. The short route will require some minor rock climbing (12-15’ dry waterfalls), which can be challenging if you aren’t dressed for hiking or you have young children or people who are not sure-footed in your group. Not bad but not easy. There are no sign markers to point out the petroglyphs so keep your eyes peeled after climbing the larger of the dry waterfalls. Mountain bikes are prohibited on the trail.

fantastic hike. highly recommended. it is quite sunny with little shade, so dress accordingly. the 100, 200, and 300 trails are not pet friendly per the lady at the visitor center. definitely stop in beacuse they were very helpful with letting us know what to expect. the turn from the 100 trail to the 200 is especially tricky so watch for that.

Very easy at the beginning. Eventually you get to some dry fall which can be challenging to climb over.

Dog are not allowed. An angry lady in the visitors center will scream at you if you try. I did not get to hike.

Love this trail lose gravel so make sure you wear appropriate shoes if your doing the loop expect some minor climbing and incline hiking noting to crazy also beware of our little lizard friends they are everywhere lol also som desert jack rabbits might startle you, if you want a little challenge do the loop go right at the first 100 marker on trail 100 and if you wanna just a nice smooth hike continue left at that same 100 marker and you'll only have two sets of medium size rock formations to climb. I got out there early around 630-700am but the gates to the visitors center doesn't open till 830 I believe so you will have to park your car by the main gate and hike up the road to the trail. Good luck and have fun drink plenty of water.

Definitely challenging mostly because of the gravel. Great view, nice people on the trails, and a quiet and clean environment. Don't forget to sign the book, in the metal box, next to the trail poster! A great long hike that turned into six miles! The weather was perfect.

Beautiful hike into a canyon. There are quite a few petroglyphs along the trail. Not a bad trail to hike, but there are a few place you have to scramble.
