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.
