Not as wet or crowded as kenarra Falls. Good canyons and really enjoyed the quiet time!

This is one of the true hidden gems in Utah. The first part of this hike can seem long and dry, but it is really worth it. Be sure to take lots of water. Once you get in the slot canyon it cools down. Take you time and enjoy all the beauty of this canyon.

A really good & easy hike. The only thing that’s not fun is all the loose sand that you have to walk through. Other than that, it’s so beautiful!

Good hike, a hidden gem, but those walking dogs should be wary of broken glass randomly throughout trail

Very easy, scenic hiking trail that’s easy for the whole family. You have to off road to get to the head of the trail, but once you’re on the trail itself, it’s a leisurely walking trail. You do pass through water every once in a while but there’s sturdy rocks to use at stepping stones to pass through.

A doctor told me recently that kids get sick bc they don’t play in the mud enough. Well, do I have the trail for you! My hubs and I, and our 2 dogs, hiked this trail today and had a lot of fun. The first mile or so is super muddy, but dries up a bit when you get a little farther. I’ve always been more comfortable hiking in sneakers, but I definitely recommend hiking boots for this trail. It’s a nice, easy hike that we all enjoyed a lot. The dogs had a blast running through the mud and the snow as well!

Our most favorite hike so far this season. Once in the canyon it even smells wonderful. Great family hike. Took us about 2.5 hours.

This trail is amazing! It's easy and has an ever changing and exciting landscape. It seems to go on forever and you can turn back at any time. Near the end there are tons of fun boulders and climbs you can climb over and find your way around but nothing that needs equipment. The slot canyon kept us cool from the hot sun. It's very green and would be positively gorgeous in the fall. This is my new favorite chill hike. The best part about it is that it isn't very well known so it's pretty empty. We had the whole hike to ourselves!

We were the only ones on the entire trail. The first 1.5 miles to the start of the slot canyons is relatively uninspiring. This part would be hot in the middle of the summer. Once you reach the slot canyon at 1.5 miles, the temperature drops and the walk is much more interesting. The trail is not really marked and we made the turnaround at the point where the boulders start to collect in the canyon (at approx. 2.5 miles). Just prior to turning around we heard an owl calling from a perch high up on the wall. We believe it was a Mexican Spotted owl. We were lucky enough to watch it for a short while before heading back.

Beautiful! Not the grandeur of Zion or Bryce, but there is a lot to be said about solitude. We were the only ones on the trail the entire time.

The first two miles are tough when it's hot, but after that, it turns into a trail that's worth every step. It becomes very shaded, and breathes like nature itself. I can't wait to come back!

Really fine hike. Next time we'll continue past the rockfall. We're told there are some really nice side canyons further on.
