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!

We hiked from the Route 24 trailhead. A very flat, easy 2.5 hour round trip through magnificent canyon narrows with a very convenient park toilet at the turn around point which for us was the parking area for those hiking in from the scenic drive end.

Quiet, flat easy trail. Great for a late evening walk.

Very nice flat hike between towering rocks. This wash is made from rushing rainwater but was very dry. We enjoyed beautiful wildflowers. As the day progressed, we passed more people. Good for children.

A completely relaxing hike through a canyon with impressive vertical walls. The kids had a great time here trying to find geodes (with surprising success) and generally just exploring everything they could. It's a great hike to just unwind and enjoy the scenery.

A gentle slope makes this trail easy. The narrows are not too far from the west end so you can go there and back to make a shorter hike. Nice hike in a wonderful national park.

Nice easy shady trail along the wash with huge canyon walls on either side. We connected this trail with Cassidy Arch.
