We got a mid morning start and it was very hot, completely sun exposed trail, up hill with early and late moderate climbs. The upper half is through juniper and pinion pine to a fantastic overlook of the gorge and river below . Great spot for a snack. Some great rock formations and a hoodoo along the way. We saw flowering cacti, yucca, red tail hawk and lots of lizards. I definitely recommend this hike but start early to avoid getting cooked in the sun.
