Amazing little hike. It feels like three hikes in one. You get to hike out across the flats, then through the narrow slot canyon, and then in the wider canyon filled with trees and water pools. Mileage recorded on phone was .3 longer than the trail guide indicated but I didn't mind. In the spring this hike is perfect, and the last 2/3 would be nice in the summer. But the first 1/3 across the flats would be scorching hot.

This hike was easy, relatively flat, and just gorgeous. The narrow slot canyon was awesome! Look for lizards! This is my new favorite small hike in the park.
