Next time I visit I'm definitely wearing my running clothes.

Stop by and climb Courthouse Rock as well and it's a perfect hike. Little bit of everything. Only complaint is it's a popular trail

Amazing beautiful and simply complicated hike. I prefer to take the counter clockwise route to go down the staircase more than going up.

Great all around Adventure.

Would be better to do when weather has been very dry. 4 days ago rain and very muddy in patches.

Difficult to find the head of the trail, but fun to walk! Will definitely have to come back when I don't have a kid strapped to my back

We do this every time we're in RRG! There's a waterfall and lots of areas to set up and hang out for a bit. You can also climb up the bridge pretty easily. Going across the log is kinda scary. Favorite place to go and spend a couple hours and play in the water.

Super pretty! Lots of places to go off trail and explore. Sometimes you can see cranes in the water! The sandstone at the end is fun to climb and hang out for a bit.

Fun trail! The best part is the overlooks just past the arch. Worth going a little further to check it out! Path is easy and in the spring/ early summer there's blueberries. :)

Fantastic trial! Also saw 4 snakes, rate the snakes as 10/10 they didn't bite us and were very polite. (Keep a lookout!) So great we did this hike twice in the short time we were in RRG.

Easy to follow trails, nice hike to the waterfalls. Worth the trip.
