Great spot camping at the dispersed sites by the river. Beautiful views at the bottom of the canyon and fun time swimming in the river. August 2018.

Beautiful views going down and up. You pretty much are going down or up, very little flat. The springs and the river are well worth the altitude change. The petroglyphs just past the camping area are very nice as well. 85 degrees, we needed more than the 2 bottles of water we brought.

It’s not long and it’s not difficult. And, the manufactured pavilion coverings really detract from the natural beauty. However! The first look out over the canyon is AMAZING!

Beautiful trail, shady in the morning - the river is gorgeous at the bottom. It is a pull coming out of the canyon but worth it.
