Great trail for my 9yo son & I. One recommendation would be to take the utility road out and ride the ridge back. The opposite direction had a little too much climbing for the kiddo.

I hiked this trail in mid December and it was perfect weather outside. Although this trail is measured at 5.9mi, my gps mapped it at 8.64. Its not marked well towards the end. I think that the windmill trail is supposed to be an out and back. It seemed like if you follow this routing it takes you through the bowls and ledges trail as well. However, it was quite nice. If you park at the first parking lot instead of the windmill trailhead, this loop will take you right to it. There are some absolutely beautiful views of the rim. Also, i'm not really sure why this is rated as moderate, unless its just for the distance. I would rate this on the higher end of easy because there isn't much elevation gain and the tail is very well kept. Its perfect for taking a dog out. All in al, not bad and definitely beautiful views. ENJOY!
