Once you get to the good stuff near the steeper parts, the trail markings disappear with no warning or sign that says “End if Trail” like other hikes in the area. So we spent a lot of time trying to find the next marker/rock pile thing, and we never could and gave up. We wanted it to be exciting and rewarding to get to the top but we never made it due to uneasiness and confusion.

Challenging and definitely rewarding— don’t take your grandma or kids or dog or Starbucks latte. You have to climb up a steep crevice with some footholds and when you finally get to the saddle of the rock, it’s amazing. Great views, beautiful colors. Would recommend to anyone in the area. I had to sit on my butt a couple of times on the climb down so wear clothes you can get dirty.

Awesome trail great view

Very nice easy trail on weekdays. Weekends you need to have a heads Up for those on bikes as this trail is a very popular mountain bike area. This trail is mostly flat with just a little elevation gain, great for early morning or early evening get a way hikes.

A wonderful loop, just keep in mind that the loop contains portions of 2 other trails ( Deadman's Pass, and Long Canyon) it also uses a short connector. Beautiful views, walking along the side of the mountain. On the back side just getting to the Deadman's Pass section we were relaxed with some Indian wind and flute music from across the valley.
