Wow this place absolutely lives up to its billing!! A short magical journey through two sandstone creek gorges with Waterfalls, Blueholes and tons of places to explore. We added on the trip to Sycamore Falls and found some rock pinnacles to climb around in. Standing on top of the tallest one was really cool !!The best feature to me was Black Canyon Cascade. Plan to return in the summer to enjoy the amazing Blueholes !!

Such an amazing and beautiful trail! It really does have everything if you can tough out the 10 miles. It does get somewhat technical at points, so I think the "hard" rating is appropriate. Give yourself about 6 hours to complete it if you can keep a pretty good pace.

Like hiking in an enchanted forest! One of my favorite “easy” hikes!

Amazing trail! Challenging, but so beautiful!! One of the best hikes I've been on so far!

I’m not sure why this site has the trail at 9.1 miles. This is the 2nd time I have completed the trail and I get right at 10 miles each time. Once again, the trail was amazing. Late March, started in the morning at about 45 degrees and the temp never got above 55 degrees. It was perfect hiking weather, but really chilly at Raven’s Point. We did the trail counter-clockwise and went through the Gizzard first. It’s tough to enjoy Raven’s Point when you’re pretty exhausted. Next time I’ll try this trail starting with Dog Hole first and finishing in the Gizzard. Didn’t need as much water with cooler temps, but if you have a small Helinox chair, I would recommend bringing it. I’m going to pick up a couple for the next trip. It would be amazing to be able to sit next to the creek for a while and enjoy the peace and quiet for a while. Can’t wait to do it again!

don't take small children. really good trail otherwise

Gorgeous hike with lots of scenery. Was able to complete while carrying my 8 month old son in his baby carrier. Definitely planning to head back during warmer months to enjoy the blue holes.

Beautiful hike. Fairly easy.

Beautiful trial with gorgeous river trail and small falls along the way. Highly recommend for a quick day hike.

This trail is awesome. Lots of payoffs: good views on rock outcroppings, waterfalls, beautiful forests. There is a ton of good stuff to see packed into 12 or so miles. There are some good backcountry sites to camp, although it is a shame that the midway campsites at Raven's Point are closed. On that note, hiking the trail end to end in a day, with a pack, is NOT easy. My wife and I are fairly active but not the athletes we used to be. At almost 40 years old the ups and downs of this trail will wear you out. There are also a few spots that are a bit scary, not bad, but take the packs off and pass them up as you climb. Awesome trail that you should definitely try. And SUPER nice and active park rangers, checking to make sure everyone made it to camp safely and not lost on the trail. If you don't have a shuttle car or don't want to hike all the way back (we didn't - too tired - haha) then call Troy @ Troy Transportation. He'll give you a lift from one end to the other for a small amount of dough - totally worth it! His number is listed at the trailhead. Enjoy!

Great hike for us even with relatively young kids. Lots of interesting scenery to keep kids interested and moderate elevation changes to create a little bit of challenge. Trail in very good shape.

Had an amazing hike there, one of the most challenging I've been on in a long time... well marked trail...

Super fun and worth the hike. Very rocky. So many sites to see and many small waterfalls. The views from ravens point is worth the extra mile.

This is it for trails, has everything!!! An awesome, amazing place. One of my favorites!

Absolutely beautiful hike! Check out our review at www.Wander-Full-Life.com

This was an excellent hike. Amazing views and plenty of places to relax. Ravens point is a view worth the hike. Take lots of water!

Great hike, especially with walking next to the stream for the majority of it and having several waterfalls. Also, there is a local there that will give you a ride to the opposite end of the trail since it is a through hike and that makes it really convenient to get back to your vehicle.

Outstanding! Make sure you start early and plan your whole day around it. So much to see. You’ll want to stop and take it all in. Maybe consider camping overnight to break it up. It’s a hike! But a great one!

One of my top three trails.

Beautiful hike a must see

One of my favorites! Gorgeous and a nice day hike. It's incredible all 4 seasons. It's somewhat rugged for beginners but there is a shorter hike that leads into this one, it also goes on to a 13 mile hike if you want a little more.

One of a kind.

Give yourself at least seven hours. And if you decide to hike down to Foster Falls at the end, give yourself another 1/2 hour.

Thanks to R. Keenan for sharing the info about Dorothy Thomas's shuttle service.

This loop has a lot of great views. Get out there early so you can take your time to soak it all in.

a favorite, especially like checking out sycamore falls in winter

Good day hike! Easy trails, moderately crowded but not too much so. Lots of pretty waterfalls, and lots of options depending on how far you want to go.

We did this trail yesterday and I have nothing but good things to say about it. It's challenging, but easily doable as a day hike. And the scenery... literally 10 miles of nothing but awesome things to look at. We loved it!!

Great Hike! Awesome scenery, especially along the creek! Got some great pictures and an even better workout! Will definitely be going back in the future!
