Nice day hike, once you reach top of Mesa, keep left for walking along canyon rim for great views, or go right to a Jeep trail to the south rim and some great views of the south canyon. The trail to the Duct pond veers slightly to the southeast, and is hard to see so keep a lookout, trail turns east to a steep descent, then take a right turn where two Jeep trail meet. Likely to be dry unless there has been recent rains. Take plenty of water, watch for snakes on the south Jeep trail.
