Great harder intermediate trail! So much fun! A couple steep sends, some fun rollers, and options to jump some rocks. 4/5 for a small workout at the beginning. Loved it!

Awesome trail and not too busy...

Love this hike. 5 miles in and out. Beautiful scenery. Must do early to enjoy.

Too hot during July unless you go very early and best for biking not hiking in summer. Great riding trails on 18 Road

Don’t leave 18 road without going DOWN this. Best fun you will have.

Great beginner trail!

pretty. I have always liked hiking by the water. Strolled with my dog on Mary’s and wrangler. Fairly easy. And got really good view of the river. Lots of MTBs, though.

Great beginner to moderate skill trail. The views of the Colorado River and surrounding scenery is fantastic. It is a popular riding and running area, so at peak times it can be fairly busy, but everyone I’ve met has been respectful and polite.

Enjoyed the walk with my dog, saw lots of mountain bikers and had to keep a sharp eye behind me! Still a beautiful desert trail though, not difficult at all and was completed in 2 hours. Good view of the Colorado river halfway through.

Lots of horse droppings. It's also sandy until you get to the canyon.

Beautiful trail that winds through the desert and leads to several river overlooks! It was a perfect short hike for the evening once the temperatures cool off.

Great trail system that allows for short or long hikes depending on how you link them together. We used the app on the intersections to confirm where we wanted to go. Saw a group of horse riders as well which was fun. The views of the national monument were stunning!

Only went a couple miles in but it was a pretty hike!

took this for my first real mountain biking trail. It is marked with hints for newbies like me and the difficulty increases just enough to challenge new riders. the sights are beautiful! and the trail is a blast!!

I imagine it's a better trail for mountain biking. So so for hiking. Nice overlook of the Colorado River at one point.

Just finished this trail. First time Mountain Biking, went with friend. It absolutely broke me off. Definitely several spots with a 'pucker factor'. Very fun. Need to get into shape and run it again and again!

More of a mountain biking trail than a hiking trail for sure. This is one of the trails I learned to bike on. Great for beginners (just technical enough to be challenging but not dangerous). The views from the canyon rim are hard to beat on bike trails.

You start with a small climb... a little rocky, but nothing too bad, then the trail winds across the canyon rim for several miles. Quite a fun trail!

Easy loop. Good for beginner/intermediates to get used to this type of trail. 4 stars for it's access to other trails. Also, the loop is more like 6.5 miles rather than the advertised 8.5 as AllTrails suggests.

This is a very fun trail with excellent views. Because this trail is rated as intermediate, I was caught off guard by the several hike-a-bike sections. But the rideable parts definitely live up to the intermediate rating.

This is a really fun loop, and pretty easy. But the best part is that it accesses many other excellent loops such as Horsethief, Steve's Loop, and Moore Fun.
