This is loop trail that follows an old wagon trail. The best views were behind you looking towards the waterpocket fold going up or in front of you coming down. There is also a view point that allow you to get above the small trees to get a better view. 5 stars for the waterpocket fold views. 3 stars for the trail which was hard to follow the rock cairns at times. Take you time looking for the next cairn before you proceed.
