well to start with i would not rate it easy. the trail head is flat then all down hill from there, they do call it stiffknee. once you decend the walk through the hollers are great, the junction of little slick rock and slick rock creek is worth a sore knee. just remember what went must go up. i would plan a good day for this hike, take some hammocks and cook a meal and relax, you will burn the calories on the hike out. great trail last i was on.

I love this trail. However, giving it an "easy" rating is crazy. I've been on many trails I'd rate easy before I'd consider this one easy. My friends and I judge all other trails by stiffknee on our stiffknee scale. Just saying.

This trail is specified easy on here. It should be difficult! Unless your going in and not coming back out and going to the other side to get picked up. Lots of blow down in the cove on the way to little slick rock but worth it . Very beautiful.

Excellent trail with many scenic views. Trail isn't marked being in a wilderness area. Great access to Slickrock Creek after 3.7 miles down hill. The most beautiful campsite you'll find anywhere at the trail's terminus with the Slickrock Creek trail.
