I like how they incorporated the wash out as part of the trail.

This trail was nice! Nice little day trip. Lots of area to roam off the trail. Great family hike with our kids, you do climb over boulders but we did it without a problem. We felt it was Much easier on the way back then it was getting to Devils hall.

Great trail, very rocky with many boulders. I wouldn’t recommend this trail for those who aren’t somewhat agile. The trail is more difficult on the way to Devil’s Hall than it is coming back.

more of a "rocky" trail than "scrambling" trail in the sense you're more walking on and around the wash boulders vs scrambling over them -- very little hand use was required except one short segment. Devil's Hall itself is mildly interesting but not as striking as other slot canyons in the Southwest. For what it's worth, if you're looking for a short hike at Guadalupe, I thought the Smith Spring loop was much more scenic and enjoyable.

Amazing trail. I’m from the Northeast so don’t normally see this kind of landscape — prickly pear and cholla cactus, pine and juniper trees, surrounded by rugged mountains on one side and steep-walled canyons on the other. Rock steps lead you to Devil’s Hall, which is a “hall” with giant canyon walls on both sides. Just beautiful! Not a tough hike by any means — great for families or any skill level. Took me 2+ hours at a very leisurely pace to stop and soak in the amazingness.

This trail gives you a taste of how unique Gaudalupe is. It isn't a difficult trail, but nearly half the trail involves scrambling(hiking over boulders in a dried creek bed). The endpoint is worth it though.

This trail was fantastic. Like others have said, it involves quite a bit of a scrambling once you’re in the wash.

Excellent NP hike , great views and trail is well maintained. We had some snow and ice doing it in December which made it more interesting and challenging. We extended the hike by going to Devils Hall, all in about 20km.

The slot canyon payoff at the end is decent, although personally, I’ve seen more interesting slot canyons before. The journey on the way is somewhat bland, although we went in December where the Fall colors are almost entirely gone.

Nice trail, some boulder fields. 3.6 miles is not accurate. To go all the way to devils hall, it’s more like 4.3. Don’t stop at the first segmented rock formation, keep going just a little longer.

Little more than 3.6 miles! But loved it. There’s some pretty straight forward rock scrambles.

Wonderful trail for people that don’t hike and can keep balance on some of the crazy rocks. Overall my heart rate was low but beginning mile was a little tiring as some is uphill. Overall not too bad but lots of rocks for second half of walk. Was fun navigating. We couldn’t go past the top of the steps as there a million bees in a small pool of water. Sad we didn’t see the last part. Maybe have to go again.

Perfect weather and had the trail mostly to myself! A few fall colors left. Took about 2 hrs up and 1 hr down. Be ready for some pretty intense rock scrambles- fun!
