The arch is cool. Short and sweet. Saw a toad.

Nice little trail with varied terrain. Took a 2 year old and he had fun climbing on the rocks and playing in the sand at the end of the canyon. Not a strenuous hike and not high adventure, but great for families with kids looking for a nice little hike.

Great trail for families. The end of the trail is a beautiful shady bowl type area. The kids had fun running around the walls. Fun spot to play and/or picnic.

Beautiful, easy and great for all ages, very cool stream running during the rainstorms. Watch for desert tortoise along the way. Pretty little oak trees before you make it to the arch. Very short hike but nice if you don't have a ton of time!

Nice when you get back in the canyon to be shielded from the sun. Don't forget to look for the arch when you enter the canyon!

Been living here for a long time and have never been to this hidden jem. Was definitely worth it.

Fun, easy walk with the parents and grandparents. The arch is cool to see. Lots of people out and about this Thanksgiving weekend. It was unfortunate to see a few people disregarding the rules (dogs, walking off the path, breaking branches or throwing rocks). Please respect the landscape.

Took us about an hour there and back.

Love the red rock. Wanted desperately to go off trail and explore. Worth the heat!
