I did this trail on a cloudy day with some fresh wind, very nice weather to hike! The rim starts at the end of the Mundy’s Gap Trail and although it is rocky and steep, it is not difficult to walk. At the top of the mountains I put my backpack on the floor and walked around the area contemplating the beautiful landscape in all directions. Going down is the most difficult part; you have to take care of the loose rocks. I also rested a bit at the nice West Cottonwood spring area, a place with a very comforting shadow. Very nice trail, I enjoyed a lot.
