Excellent trail and don’t follow those little cairns, just hike straight up.

Tricky to see the little cairns at times, but well worth the effort!

This is a fun walk over slickrock following cairns to a nice set of petroglyphs and, a bit further on, an intense cliff. Finding the glyphs requires hugging the wall once it becomes flat and vertical. Staying on the slickrock takes you to the precipice, but misses the ancient art. Both are worth doing. As the recordings show, its closer to 3.5 miles, 800'. Wear sunscreen, bring mucho water.
