I wouldn't rate this trail easy if your hiking in from the top. At the start of this trail you have to descend 1,200' down a cliff face of loose rock. If you drive to the beginning on white rim road, it wouldn't be as hard but if you're hiking in from the top, it is much harder heading in and out. The views are incredible though!

Easy trail to do, virtually straight the entire trip. Well marked trail and easy to follow. My GPS showed approx. 330 feet of elevation change. Great view with a serious drop off. This would be a great hike for a sunset!
