challenging hike. shade was nice, dogs found it super hot regardless of shade. lots of loose rocks, easy to roll an ankle if you aren't mindful of where you step. great glute and calf workout though!

Nice trail for three of us (including 6 year old). Plenty of tree cover and views. Occasional fallen tree to climb over or around.

Park in Sulphur Canyon picnic area ($3 user fee). Stay right at Faulty Trail.

Very pretty hike, but a few things to note: I would say this is more of a moderate hike. The first 0.6 miles from the trailhead near the bathrooms was nothing but uphill. Also, definitely take some kind of map, it's very easy to get lost at the intersections. Lots of shade, I do recommend taking time to bird watch and just enjoy the location.

Really an enjoyable hike with plenty of shade and wonderful views. Lots of parking and places to picnic after your hike.. trailhead kind of hard to find...it’s on the east side of the parking lot in the Sulpher Canyon picnic ground and spits you back out in the same lot,

this was a perfect trail for a hot summer day. it had a good amount of shade and wasnt too buggy. however, if you are looking to do the 3 mile loop dont follow the all trails directions to the trail, it will take you to the middle of nowhere. to do the loop, park at the sulphur canyon picnic area. take the sulphur trail to faulty trail and then that takes you to the bill springs trail and back around to the parking lot.
