Quiet trail that ends up in a breathtaking box canyon.

Amazing little hike. It feels like three hikes in one. You get to hike out across the flats, then through the narrow slot canyon, and then in the wider canyon filled with trees and water pools. Mileage recorded on phone was .3 longer than the trail guide indicated but I didn't mind. In the spring this hike is perfect, and the last 2/3 would be nice in the summer. But the first 1/3 across the flats would be scorching hot.

This hike was easy, relatively flat, and just gorgeous. The narrow slot canyon was awesome! Look for lizards! This is my new favorite small hike in the park.

We combined this with the Burr Trail. Decent escape to the back country, some nice scenery. Easy drive, could get tougher after rain, worth a half day if you have the extra time

Hiking in and around The Maze is a one of a kind adventure. Getting there is a challenge, but the views alone are worth the tedious drive! Be careful on the route from the Maze Overlook to the canyon floor via the Maze Overlook trail. It requires some class 4 scrambling and takes more time that you might think. The Chocolate Drops are viewable from many locations around the Maze Overlook, fun hiking without going all the way down into the canyon.

This trail goes from I-70 (exit 131) along graded roads to Hwy 24 near Goblin Valley State Park. Lots of scenic desert areas.
