Take the Bandelier shuttle and get off at the first stop (Not the visitors center) to easily access this wonderful hike down into the canyon. Very flat for the first half, but then opens up into beautiful vistas and tight twists and turns as you descend. Very little shade so be prepared for that. Young kids handled it with no problems. Frey ends at the Main Loop Trail where you have the option to continue on, or take a short walk towards the Bandelier Visitors Center.
