We enjoyed this route on 5/15. Fairly easy, cool in the narrows. We took the route south to north which seemed like it was probably easier than the other way around. Nothing too fancy.

The hike contains a lot of interesting features, one of the best is a side canyon about a half of a mile from the south entrance, it dead ends with a long narrow ramp of white side that you can climb.
We hiked this from the south to the north and found the exit point show in the app to be very confusing, it leads you to a nearly vehicle cliff. The normal, easy exit is just a few hundred yards before the one show here. Overall a great hike with fun narrows.

This was a very pretty trail. We were a bit confused if this was a loop. But we didn’t care after walking in and seeing so much- then walking back out we saw more things! There are some harder spots to get around , up and over but nothing really difficult. All the colors of rocks were amazing! We ran the soft sand and walked the rocks. It was 3 miles in and 3 out. Worth doing

This trail has an entry for Cottonwood North and South. We picked South as someone who went the day before (Dec. 30, 2017) told us South had water, and North was Dry. We entered at South and walked North until the Boulder Choke. Possibly we could have traversed it, but did not. Most of the rest of the trail was packed or slightly soft sand, sometimes with rocks and boulders. There were a few other tricky spots to get up and down, but nothing too bad. There is also a side canyon at one point. We went to the mouth of that but did not go in as the sand seemed to be pretty deep there. When we got back to the trail entry point, we exited a bit farther down than where we entered. One of the entries is a 4-5 foot drop, another is a slightly steep hill (we entered on this) and the other is through a wash with a slightly steep trail up to the road. Over all we liked this trail, and hope to go again.
