Fun little hike. We finished in less than 30 mins, but it was an ok trail with the dogs. Some parts were muddy and snow covered , but it can be expected in January.

This was an incredible hike! I went with my 63-year-old mother and it was gentle yet so fun for both of us. We also found the hike to be so beautiful. Nobody was around and we felt like we had the entire canyon to ourselves. I have experienced Canyonlands and Arches and I honestly felt this place was just as beautiful. Perfect stopover.

Lots of poison ivy. Short & sweet. Stagnant pond was a temperature drop. But definitely infested with mosquitoes.

Fun short trail! Sand at the start gets hot in the afternoon. I recommend booties if you are bringing your pup. Once you get back to the pool you can feel the cool sand and it is mostly shaded. It was our oasis on a 100 degree day with our pup.

Just okay. Lots of poison ivy in July. Mosquitos by the large puddle (aka pond) that followed me most of the way out. Easy, short out and back.

There is a significant amount of poison ivy towards the walls. Be careful. It was pretty meh. I needed a quick hike in and out just to stretch my legs so this did the trick. Easy for kids but again, there’s a lot of poison ivy and places to potentially veer off. I couldn’t quite tell what was the trail or dried river bed ¯\(°_o)/¯

We were looking for a short trail to hike before we got back on the road and this trail delivered. It was short, but beautiful and our dog enjoyed it very much.

Ok, fun for kids. Easy short trail. We went in Feb right after a rain, so no poison ivy but pretty muddy. Easy quick hike right outside of Moab.

such a cute little trail into a truly special location! short trail, flat and even, we went with lots of snow on the ground and had no issues. ends at a cute pond and the canyon walls are just stunning. we went at sunset and the light illuminating the canyon was beautiful and then ran across the street to the colorado river to catch the rest! definitely check it out if you have an extra 30 minutes in moab

Very short and lots of poison ivy on the trail. A bunch of stagnant water at the end of the canyon that’s not really worth hiking too. If you’re just in Moab for a couple of days definitely skip this one. There are much better hikes

This trail is definitely easy, but super beautiful. I did it on my way through Moab and it was barely out of the way. A great way to stretch your legs and most of it was in shade so even though we did it mid afternoon it was still enjoyable.

Went here May 11 and it was very full of poison ivy! It’s everywhere and you can’t avoid it! Be careful this spring and summer.

Very easy. The markings in the stone are outside the canyon so you simply can drive up and look. Ended up doing a bit of exploring and had fun.

Super kid and dog friendly! My kids loved this hike the most out of the 5 we did in the Moab area. They loved the scenary, hiking terrain, and the end “special” spot :-)

Nice short trail. We climbed up to wall to the edge and walked around to the natural amphitheater and it was beautiful.
