We hiked this trail right after completing Devil's Den and the canyon walls were worth it.

Easy hike across the basin before dropping into a rocky dry riverbed. At the end of the trail via the riverbed is a nice little canyon with cliff faces on either side.

Nice trail with a very scenic canyon at the end. This trail is a good last trail to hike as you are leaving the park towards Marathon.
