This is a wonderful hike from the Land of Standing Rocks. It's a full 12 mi round trip with some scrambling down to the canyon floor and then back up again. The Harvest Scene is a masterpiece. It's an easy hike and temps in the 70's made for very pleasant conditions. One word of caution: the walk is along river bottom and is very sandy. It doesn't necessarily slow you down, but because your feet are working differently than they would on a harder surface, some blistering may occur. Take moleskin along and treat those hotspots early. Total time out and back from the trailhead at The Plug was 6 hrs.
