Great

Fun hike with a small amount of scrambling. Stunning when the wildflowers are blooming.

Easy Hike, beautiful scenery.

Super cool but too short, I wanted more. Worth seeing

Lots of green plants and plenty of animal life; we saw so many lizards and butterflies along the way. The water is beautiful & there is not much trash along the trail. Bonus points for having clean outhouses at the trailhead. The ancient art work is amazing ! There's also a mini slot canyon leading up to the end of the trail, with a small pool & waterfall waiting.

Beautiful scenery. Lots of wild flowers, clear water stream. Just disappointed we didn't find the waterfalls. But overall it was fun.

We had a fantastic time on this trail!! Couldn't have chosen a better one to get a real feel for the area. Not to mention the HUNDREDS of ancient Native petroglyphs!! They're right at the beginning of the hike near the creek so you don't have to exhaust yourself to see them. You can walk right up to them! The vibe you get from that beautiful, sacred area is unreal.
We wanted a shorter, harder hike so we opted to stray from the trail and climb a nearby peak. The terrain off the trail is quite difficult but it was awesome for us since we love scrambling! Wish we could come back to hike to the end of the trail and see the spring! Next time. :)
Tips:
Bring lots of water!!! It's hot!
Wear thick boots and long pants if you can. There's lots of pokey plants and loose gravel. Nothing you can't avoid if you're careful though. I wore shorts and left with barely a scrape!

We took this trail today. Had a great time. Beautiful views everywhere you look. Some easy and some challenging 4 wheelen. All in all a great day.

It is more like rock climbing. Not hiking

Had a great walk !! Gotta go see 1000 year old Indian drawings.

Amazing views great fun difficult areas would do again

The directions will take you about a half mile passed the turnoff to the trail head, although it was pretty easy to figure out that we needed to turn around and take the CHRISTMAS TREE PASS EXIT, from there follow the signs about two miles to a parking area.
We went New Years Eve 2016 and there were a lot of people on the trail, and despite this the back half of the trail was much less trafficked and pretty over grown with thorny bushes. Our clothes got a little snagged.
There are a lot of different little ways to use the trail depending on how difficult you want to make it. I would not suggest this trail to anyone who isn't comfortable climbing big slippery rocks or hiking up steep hills. We brought our husky/shepherd dog and she did really well jumping up and over 5+ foot rocks, but I definitely would not call this trail dog or kid friendly.
Over all though it was a really good hike and we got some incredible views.

Amazing Magical Place!
lots of rock climbing, good grip boots recommended. Many nice big reptiles along the way great for kids who enjoy climbing and exploring (bit dangerous for beginners). Trail is not well maintained and could be difficult to figure out the way. Sacred paintings are beautiful and there's something magical and spiritually in that mountain (personal experience). Good family adventure and overall an amazing place to explore!!

Hike at your own risk. The trail is not well maintained. Vines and bushes are growing out of control. Therefore, it blocked the path over boulders. View is awesome though. Bring a truck ,
Bumpy road for smaller cars.
