This trail is a real pain in the neck...as in, these beautiful walls are so high, we spent the whole time looking straight up. Stunning canyon walls, especially as it narrows.

Amazing! We felt like we were the only people there.

One of our favorite hikes on our trip to Utah! We almost had the trail to ourselves, besides 3 or 4 other groups. Great canyon views and solitude. Very easy trail.

Did this hike at 8:00 in the morning and sandwiched the return trip around a hike to Cassidy Arch. It was 60F when we left and 70F when we returned. The morning light was cool with the shadows and the color on the cliffs that were lit. The return hike had the light shining down into the canyon and made for a hotter return trip. Photographing the canyon in the morning light tough with the deep shadows and the bright lit canyon walls, but I managed. Anyway, the hike itself is easy and the lines in the cliff walls really interesting. In fact, we were enjoying our hike so much we missed the Cassidy Arch junction and wound up at the other end. Just a really cool hike and I would do it again in a heartbeat.

Nice easy hike. No inclines, just a flat trail through the canyon walls. The out and back did not feel like we return the same way we headed out since the view of the landscape completely changed. The turnaround point had a restroom, which was a nice bonus!
