Windy day in the low 40s in Petrified Forest. The loop took me 30 minutes while stopping for many pictures. Beautiful views in every direction as the trail leads down to a valley with clay formations surrounding you.

We hiked this trail on 3/4/19. Great views and quite cool to be down among the rock features. The trail is steep at the beginning but is entirely paved. Definitely would recommend for any visitors of Petrified Forest.

There’s no rhyme or reason to this trail. Not quite sure what it goes out to.

Easy loop with beautiful view of the badlands!

Beautiful example of desert badlands- very distinctive blue gray color and plenty of petrified wood uncovered.

This was the last trail we did in Petrified Forest and while the size of the logs was impressive, the colors were nothing like Jasper Forest.

Fabulous, a must do at Petrified National Park!!! Short but absolutely stunning and unique views — the colors are gorgeous, and the ancient earth energy is amazing. Thank you Mama Earth ✨

I liked this trail. Even my mother hiked it with me. Great little loop and the blue hues of the mesa were fun to take pics of and edit the color later on my camera.

Did whole trail; no chance to record.
Easy walk, viewing the site.
Some wise steps, except for one, inclines are not steep (and even then, it wasn’t really steep, just in comparison to the rest of the trail).
Incredible to think how many millions of years those logs have been around!
I recommend for all levels.

Great short hike. Some steepness in the beginning. Highly recommend considering how short the hike is and for the views.

Great trail! It goes right through the middle of the Blue Mesa!!

Great trail! A good chance to stretch your legs and see some cool scenery. There’s also a good amount of petrified wood scattered around the trail. Has a bit of a steep start and ending just FYI.

Not a difficult hike, but some great views. It can be a bit slippery after the rain, so use some caution, but otherwise it is pretty easy, which gives you time to take in the colors!

loved it, like walking on another planet

Pretty easy trail to complete. The only small challenge is the initial 300 ft where you descend into the lower area to see the base of the Mesa. Beautiful layers, we compared them to the Badlands in North and South Dakota. it was definitely hot, 107 the day we made the loop. Under cooler conditions it would be very easy. Highly recommended.

This hike was beyond beautiful! Simple loop but was hot so bring water! Great photo opportunities on this hike with all the wonderful colors.

Easy loop into an amazing part of the park. Petrified wood and the blue-purple tint of the mesa walls are so alien.

The hike was super beautiful and peaceful. Easy trail as well, the Agate house honestly was not as cool as what I expected being that it is a reconstructed version to show you what it originally was. But still definitely a must see if you visit the park!

My favorite trail in petrified forest NP. The view is really like in another planet. It make me remember the movie of Interstellar.

It was a pretty and easy hike, but there was not much petrified wood here. Other areas of the park have much more.
