From the trailhead it was an 7 mile out and back. We reached the trailhead via a rocky steep gravel/sand/mud track which was pot holed and rocky. It lead from Rockville over an old Parker Bridge. The trail was sandy and rocky but well marked (don't confuse the trail with a dry wash which runs alongside and crosses the trail at times) being a desert of juniper and pine with flowering cacti. We saw black-chinned hummingbirds feeding on the flowering cacti. Looking north from our destination underneath eagle crag was a stunning view of Zion and its canyons.

Really nice trail, beautiful views, easy to follow, some sandy some rocky sections. Fairly shaded which is nice for the dogs. About half way through after a good climb the trail starts to head slightly down and cuts along the side hill. There’s one section where it almost looks like the trail ends but step over the down tree and look for a Carin, continue in the same direction as before. This section is exposed to the sun and less well worn, but still decent to follow. I turned around after about a mile following it because it was getting to be too hot for the dogs. Beautiful views, worth doing. Road to get there was a little bumpy and steep at the beginning but no need for 4 wheel. Nice parking lot and map at the trailhead.

The trail is great. Getting there and back in my Ford Fiesta was an adventure that I will not repeat. There are a lot of good trails around here that don’t require a high profile vehicle. If you are determined to get there then have a go but be careful.

Great trail. We hiked it to climb the towers on top of the ridge. Amazing views and fairly moderate. Made it to the trailhead with my low-clearance passenger car.

We didn't actually get to the trailhead. The road got worse and worse, and we ended up turning back. A high clearance vehicle would probably work. Giving in 3 stars for the awesome view of Zion on the way up to the trailhead.

It's a nice hike with beautiful views. There's more than 650 ft of elevation gain..... It goes up and down and up and down over several ridges. You get a beautiful view of Zion and Springdale.
