This hike is very easy but so enjoyable. The footing is like walking in a dry creek bed and about a mile up the trail is house on fire. The walk itself is serene, quiet, a calm hum. The trail is flanked by yellow juniper, ponderosa pine, sage and manzanita. It’s mellow enough that your exhausted irritated teenage daughter will manage without too much complaining. I LOVED this hike!

Visitors have the choice of seeing the bridge from the overlook or walking down into the canyon to see it from below. I have a recording of our walk. The recording has two branches. The right branch takes you to the overlook which is flat and I believe, paved. The left branch will take you down into the canyon. First you walk down some steps and it starts out steep, then it levels out when you walk around this huge mushroom looking boulder (that's the boulder you stand on top for the overlook), then the trail will take a switch back and go down a steep decline. We did not go any further as since it was winter, the trail was a bit slippery and icy. From this switchback where you are bascially standing under the overlook, we took another photo from this lower vantage point. See my recording for photos.

Easy hike and great photo ops of several ruins. Hiked mid December, dry, sunny and daytime temps in the low 50s. Little or no people, awesome.

Fun! We were able to find three ruins in 3 miles (one way) but I’m sure there are more! Just keep looking up.

A great hike with kids. It was a little muddy with a lot of clay, but maybe nothing to worry about unless it's monsoon season.

(*This trail is actually marked to short on this map, the bridge is twice as far as shown on here, so don't believe the distance or the elevation #'s You have to hike down to where the trail crosses the streams, that's where the Bridge is). Another cool trail, very steep, In the sun all day, gets VERY hot, also has a ladder or two, stairs, not for the out of shapers!

Somewhat easy trail up Mule Canyon, following a small creek or wash (depending on when you go) Great photo op, can go farther down the canyon to other ruins if your wish & have the time
