Trail starts out with a gradual climb then gets steeper at about the half way point. Hiked until a boulder wedged into a narrow part of the canyon. Loved all the variety of rock formations and colors.

this hike was amazing.. hike it around 7, because the colors are the most vibrant and then you'll catch the sun setting on the way back, which makes the colors change again. ran into a skunk, so be careful. I had music playing, so that provided plenty warning and still saw wild life. this hike is was awesome and plan on doing it lots more, especially w friends who visit.

note: you have to park in the parking lot to the right, walk across the street to towards the canyon and that's where the unmarked path is.

also, the other pics uploaded by someone else is of a different Taylor Creek fork, think left fork. that one is not very scenic, the south for is the pics I uploaded and is worth every step.
