Very nice hike, at this time-west fork trail is only accessible by this route. Look for cave dwelling at about mile 3, many river crossings and wildlife, basically level terrain

We did this trail around 10AM, it does get warm. There is no shade. The trail is a loop, with half the loop up against the rocks. The rocks are where the beautiful Petroglyphs are. We had our dog, and he saw lots of lizards. We did not see any snakes but were warned plenty about them.

Great view... Love the history and the conection between the other trails in the area. Worthwhile visiting Dripping Springs. I will come back!

Very pretty hike. The water and historical structures just add to its beauty. I've hiked this trail a couple of times now. The first time I was not aware of the $5 a car charge. Well worth it but something to be prepared for. :)

too many loud ppl for our hike. not too scenic till you get closer.

I love Chaco culture in general! The history is amazing (they found jars full of cacao beans-chocolate) and the hikes are absolutely beautiful!
