A hidden canyon with spur trails and overlooks. Strenuous climb of 320 feet from west to east up 1/4 mile switchback, then moderate. More gradual climb of 440 from east to west.

rock formations are nice, we did it in 2 hours with kids so I would classify it as moderate. only the first 10 minutes are steep then it becomes a flatten walk. north and south overview are meh, pretty much the same so check the north if you don't have time.

I would rate this challenging but very doable and I think it's the best in the park. Incredible diversity in canyon walls with one exciting slot canyon and a lookout spur over Fruita that is worth the precarious climb.
Instead of doing the whole thing in reverse, I walked back along the river, saw the petroglyphs and went for pie at Gifford House then to the car park lot. Perfect hike!

Great Narrow canyon trail displaying unusual intense pocketing of cliff walls. Opportunities for slot canyon exploration. We hiked from the Giffords end to the intersection of the Frying Pan Trail and back About 2 hours and very worthwhile. Steep quarter mile of switchbacks at beginning give way to gentle hiking the rest of the way.
