Wow! This is a crazy, amazing place! We didn't end up hiking the length of the inside of crack due to having doggo with us. However, we did go along the top rim trail and into each end a ways. This is definitely one worth stopping to see!

Kids loved climbing the rocks and what a view!!! Would defiantly recommend this hike because of the unusual perspective on the tail! Short enough for a Childs attention span. We took 5yo and up. Any younger than 5 may have a hard time in the tail. Not dog friendly.

Very scenic geology definitely not dog friendly. If it is too difficult hiking in the slot you can hike trail above them and get a good view into the canyons

The photos of this place don't really do it justice, I'm impressed and I want to return soon. I didn't have any trouble finding the road by the directions on Google, the road does branch and is confusing but if you have Google maps and directions I was able to find it ok. I got a great drone video of the place, Look me up. McIntyredrones on YouTube

This is a very unique hike. Can be done as a loop where you go out in the crack and back along the top. Is not an OHV (off Highway vehicle) trail like it is currently listed as. The trail is also about a mile and a half. Could be extended with a much more difficult hike.
