Great canyon to explore. You start low with little to no vegetation, climb into the trees, and then up into the pines and aspens. No trail to Nelson peak however, you'll have to climb through bushes from there. One of my favorite trails in the Oquirrhs.

The challenge is you have have to hike over a mile just to get to the good trail with cover. Might be hard for young kids.
