Beautiful colors on the canyon walls. Check out the branching slot canyon about halfway up for a great view across the plateau.

AllTrails calles this easy (and I agree), but the Park calls it moderate.
It took me about 45-50 minutes to the top (and I was definitely taking my time). This is a well travelled trail, so it is very easy to navigate.

I saw children with parents on the trail, as well as a few older ones, so the trail is doable across all dynamics and experience levels.

I really enjoyed this one. Got some great pics at the top.

Nice trail, more of a road...but still a nice walk outdoors. Beautiful views and plenty of cows, deer, coyotes to see.

Pretty mellow hike for being a first timer, we went with a friend who showed us an alternate way down that tacked on another 1.5 miles and looped us to the trail head on which we started. Kick ass 360 view.

Easy 4 mile round trip hike!! Great Views once you get to the top!
