Fun trip for the whole family. We have 5 kids ranging from 3 to 10 years of age and they have a wonderful time in this canyon. For sure as good as it gets for little kids! You have to scramble down to the bottom of the canyon from the road above. However once you've scrambled down it's a fun somewhat challenging hike for the kids with a few rock scrambles. At the very back the canyons is narrow with shelve like layers on the west wall.

This is an unmarked trail, but a great little hike that is off the beaten path of where everyone else is.
