We hiked this with an 8 and 10 year old and had a great time. Beautiful views, no portion is very difficult by itself, and enough rock scrambling to keep it fun.

Easy hike, but you do it for the views of the Needles section of Canyonlands NP. Jaw dropping views.

Great views of the needles and surrounding areas. Full sun exposure. Fun time climbing around the slick rock. There is a loop for part of the trail and a few view points that require leaving the main trail for hundreds of feet. This trail requires you to follow cairns.
