After a short distance the trail descends steeply for around 1.5 miles and 1,000 ft, the trail flattens out until you get to a dry, sandy gravel river bed which you follow until you get to the Moses & Zeus Trail

I would rate as difficult as you must climb out the canyon. Absolutely gorgeous hike , didn't see anyone at all on the Saturday over Memorial Day weekend. A surprising amount of life! Amazing views.

Not the easiest wander. 1300 drop-which means after 10 Miles you have a 1300 climb out. But , honestly, worth it. Lizards, birds, cactus. A great way to see the south without the crowds of arches.

Beautiful views. It is a strenuous climb out of the canyon.
