This trail is deceiving. Most of the trail is in the creek bottoms which is sand and gravel. It doubles the effort to walk through the loose sand but don't give up. The wash seems to go on forever but the canyon is beautiful. Definitely go down the last scramble, the chamber and pour off are amazing. Great trail but I would not call it easy.

If you do this hike, go down the final scramble. It can be a little slick, but it’s worth it. I would disagree with this being an easy hike. I would call it a medium hike. Yes it’s only about 3.5 miles round trip. Yes it’s mostly just following a dry/gravely riverbed. But there are quite a few parts that require some nimbleness in billy goating down some rocks and at least two points that require some scrambling.
