What a great trail! It's a bit tricky to find your way to the trail head at first, but once you get there, you are in for a treat. You're up close and personal to the wall, you're walking through a pine tree-lined canyon and you're followed most of the way by friendly guide bumblebees. (At least we were.) If you are looking to get away from crowds and not need a shuttle ticket, head this way. It's so worth it.

Very cool to be right up next to the canyon walls. Very sandy and a bit or snow on the trail. But nice in the afternoon not too cold

Great hike and not a lot of people (kind of off the beaten path). So cool to be so deep in the canyon!

Beautiful trail with some slippery (sandy and loose dirt) with a few steep spots but overall not too difficult. Bring a long sleeve shirt this time of year as the inner canyon is chilly and there is snow still. Stop along the way and take in all the beauty!

Starts off with quite a few ups and downs or hilly areas. Levels out about half way and is easy from there. Bring a jacket. There’s still snow and ice and it’s pretty chilly..... feels like an ice box.

Amazingly beautiful. No crowds. Tough start for the little ones but then it gets flat and super beautiful

Loved it! Good alternative to the Middle Fork trail since it was shut down this morning due to a rock fall that closed MFTC trail. Stunning views and beautiful being in the Canyon. Still a good amount of snow as you go further toward the point of the canyon. Was challenging and seemed a touch longer than the 2.6 -- we had it at about 3.4. But truly one of my favorite hikes ever.

Super slick this time of year! Managed to do it without poles or cleats but super difficult- We had beautiful weather but still lots of melting snow and icy trail.

Icy in many spots, all covered in snow. Spikes necessary and pokes helpful. Snowshoes necessary about one mile in. Lots of post hiking. Beautiful views but maybe best to wait until spring

We went on January 31, a few days after a big, fresh snow. There were fresh tracks for about a half mile, then some older tracks for another 1/4 mile and then it was completely fresh 18” deep powder until we turned around at about 1.25 miles in. Beautiful winter hike but you should bring gaiters and trekking poles. The trail is relatively unmarked if snow covered, so download the map ahead of time. Gorgeous time to get great photos after fresh snow where the red rocks and white snow meet each other. This trail is very shaded most of the day, so bring plenty of layers if doing a winter hike. Highly recommend this trail!

Great beautiful hike. I had the hike to myself. I ended up doing a little over 4 miles, hiking to the end of canyon. I wore gaiters. The snow was mostly between 6-12 inches deep.

Good trail. We enjoyed watching the climbers. There was a short slot canyon at end that was fun. The red rock was interesting. It does not have a sign, but is across the street from a parking lot and rest area near a curve in the road. I seemed like the trail went up and down more than it needed to.

Would have gave it a 5 out of 5 other than that the trail head is not marked clearly. You can park in the parking lot with the bathrooms but then you have to walk up and across the road. otherwise it was a really pretty hike. not too difficult. definitely don't go when it's raining. We heard rocks falling off of the cliff when we were in the middle of the canyon. It's pretty sandy throughout the hike.

What a beautiful hike!! It ended up being more like 3.5 miles. The trail was shaded in the morning and it was pretty chilly so bring a coat!

It’s a beautiful trail, ends in a box canyon. Negatives are sand the entire trail and lots of kiddos.
