great hike. firs half mile is strenuous to get up above the cliffs. beyond that I suggest going northwest-ish another mile/ mile and a half to the Battle creek overlook. Gorgeous views and frightening cliffs. Also, if you do scale the immediate cliffs to the left of the trail up Dry Canyon--be aware of rattlesnakes. Saw one today, chilling under its rock perch, see pics attached.

I didn't even know this canyon existed until I heard about it through word of mouth. My GSD and I were happy to explore it even though it's strenuous!

As previous people have said, there's a North fork and a South fork (no signage, you just have to notice it when you get there). I forked North on a rainy Sunday afternoon and met 3-4 people on the trail. There were plenty of deer out and saw quite a few birds as well. There are many criss-cross trails to explore and a great one toward the beginning that leads across the cliff to a beautiful valley overlook.

As you might expect, the most rewarding part is reaching the top and standing in awe of Timp. At this point you can make your hike as long or as short as you want to by continuing to follow trails at the top or turning back. I would recommend poles on the way down, especially if it's raining since it gets slick!

This is a canyon I can't stop thinking about and will return to for further exploration and peaceful enjoyment.

Great views, you don't even need to hike super far for them. There's a nice side trail that loops back on top of the ridge with a stunning view of the valley.

If a 3 year old can do this trail, you can do it. She loved it, so did her 5 year old brother. Great hike saw a lot of deer and some bear tracks just past the cliffs to the left of the trail head sign.
