Fantastic hike!! If you are going in the afternoon, go clockwise, for afternoon shade which almost takes you into this other world. It was absolutely gorgeous. Stunning views of the canyon. If you go clockwise there is a steep initial descent, and then a pretty steep ascent around mile 4-4.5 which is probably the hardest part but its fun. A lot of exposure so take a lot of water and snacks.

These two hikes are short. The hike to Holly was 0.4 mile, and the hike to Hackberry was a mile roundtrip. We did take a truck to get to the parking lot of these two hikes. It is meant for off roading vehicles. We went a few hours before sunset and had great pictures!

Awesome and beautiful trail that gets more intense over the last five miles. Took two stock Rzrs all the way through with quite a bit of rock stacking and technical driving from Hamburger Hill on. Would not recommend this in a stock Rzr unless you have a lot of experience rock crawling. If you just want to play in the creek make sure you have enough time to turn around and go out the way you came in as that part was the most fun in a Rzr.

It's 14 km loop, not 11. Hard, no shade. You must take a lot of water.

Sooo... two girls having fun, roaming the beautiful canyons stumbled upon this trail unsuspectedly. It is f****** hard. It's got everything you might want in a trail; mud, water, it's scenic and it's got that hamburger challenge that will get your heart pumping, plus a few fun and hard obstacles on the way. When you think it's done, it's not. Also, be prepared to beat up your vehicle physically. But isn't that what it's all about?! I do not recommend anyone going alone. 3.5" with 35s.

Really fun hike! Loved the scramble boulder section. You encounter Very few others

Just happened to drive in during sunset providing incredible, classic American west views of the landscape, buttes, and formations outlined by stunning colors in the distance. Beautiful drive any time of day.

Great views along the way of the surrounding crater from the outside, and an awesome Boulder scrambling section.
