This is a good short hike if you stick to the upper section of the trail (the first 1.5 miles). If you go down into the lower canyon, the climb is pretty tough to come back the Canyon Rim trail, but not much easier if you return via the Equestrian campground and the road back to the trail start. The best views are in those first 2 miles, after which you are in the bottoms. Near the entrance of the trail between it and the campground bathhouse is a community of prairie dogs that should not be missed.

Beautiful hiking here. Recommend going with a group. Watch out for the bison that roam the area. This trail is easy. The park also offers more difficult trails up into the canyon walls. Have fun!

Wear sunscreen - no shade! Wear lots of bug spray - horse flies are obnoxious. See bison, check out the canyon. I also added on the Mesa Trail, but can't seem to find it on here. Ran into some bison and it got a little scary being alone!
