We were originally going to attempt Rattlesnake Arches but decided to break it off & do Pollock Bench instead. It's a pleasant but not spectacular hike with pleasant but not spectacular canyon views. Solitude was a big plus - we only saw two other people on a Tuesday morning in August.

The signage isn't great at times, but we found the Hiking Project written directions to be very valuable.


Unlike Monument Canyon, mentioned by C.A. below, this one goes around the rim of a canyon and not down into it. We enjoyed both - your mileage may vary.
