It's a short drive on i-40 west to the Hinton exit south on 281 through the town of Hinton you will see signs for the park on the east hand side of the road for the entrance to the canyon.
It was a nice trail. A few cool views. Though my dogs continued to get lots of stickers right on the trail. At one point I thought about carrying my long haired dog.
Overall a wonderful trail, but will not go again with dogs.
There were a few eye sores, an oil tank, a waste water lagoon and some weird abandoned buildings, but other than that most of the scenery is pretty. It just kinda spits you out on the road maybe half a mile from the trailhead though. Still it was a pretty fun hike.
Great views of the canyon.
Found the start of the path but lost it several times because of overgrown grass and poor trail markers. Ended up in a circle and headed back. May try again at a later date.
Once finding the trail, it was a good light trail with some scenic areas. Mostly it just follows the back side of the property line
Very clean campground. We were just hiking for the day but the facilities and grounds were well maintained.
