We didn’t make it to the main canyon of interest. We’re a young family of all girls who don’t sweat, so even in the relatively mild temperatures of today (70’s), the exposed nature of this trail left all of them feeling plenty warm. Be sure to bring lots of water (like all southern Utah hikes).

Only went out 2 miles. Trail well marked first mile then people have made more trails here and there. Found the right trail returning though. Of course you can't get lost because there is only a main canyon.

Fun hike. Pretty simple for kids as well. Lots of rocks and places to explore when you get to the canyon.
