This should probably be rated a Strenuous hike, at least in the summer time. It wasn’t so much the distance as the heat and the sandy path (the whole way) which made it more difficult. We started out at 0830 with the sun still behind the cliff and it was 61°. By the time we finished 6 hours later it was 93°. Limited tree shade was available occasionally. The other complicating factor was the water seemed up slightly so we spent time and energy finding stream crossing points that were relatively dry. So you might bring 1-2 pairs of dry socks. The good side was we saw zero other hikers on the trail although there was one other car at the trail head when we finished. But they might have gone upstream rather than down like we did since we saw no one. The canyon was pretty but not spectacular. Pleasant creek was nice and occasionally interesting. We didn’t see any wildlife to speak of. Bring plenty of water, at least three liters a piece, if it’s hot.

Granted we did this at the hottest time of the day 1400, but it was just okay... no where near as good as Grand Wash from Hwy 24. The canyon was not nearly as interesting. The drive back to the trailhead had more sights then the hike. Once we got back to where we needed to ascend to the Tanks, we decided to Firefox the exertion in the heat and just return.

This was a very easy, enjoyable hike with many interesting rock formations. We used the trailhead off of Highway 24 which starts out going up canyon. We encountered a herd (8-10) of Big Horn sheep about 2/3 of the way up. Very cool. We did t start until 0930 and we spent a leisurely 2.5 hours completing it... mainly due to the sheep we encountered.

This version of the Navaho Knobs trail includes the Cohab Canyon trail starting from the Fruita campground. This adds an additional 3.4 miles and 450 ft of elevation gain.

This is the best hike in the park. So much fun! I parked at the visitors center and walked the road to the trail head. A few things- talk to the rangers about the conditions and flash flood probability. Someone on here recommended water shoes like chacos- don’t. Just wear sneakers or hiking shoes. I spent a lot of time picking rocks out of my sandals. For waterfall number one if you stay all the way to right on the ledge until you can’t go anymore you will see hand holds and places to put your feet to lower your self down. Waterfall number- two stay to the right and go around the big black rock and you will see a place to lower down easily. For number 3. Sit down and ride it like a slide. The water was very high and I did have to swim through a narrow point after waterfall one. From what I heard from others ,this is unusual. So for that reason bring a dry bag for anything you don’t want to get wet. I highly recommend this hike it was AWESOME!

Amazing trail to an amazing Arch. Uphill on the way out, but gradual inclines. Gets a bit tricky towards the end, going across slickrock, following arrows on the rock. The arch is awesome, and you can actually go on top of the arch, which makes for great photo ops. Definitely will be doing again.

Lots of water! One passage was so deep, our bags were hefted above our heads while we treaded water. One waterfall was spectacular and provided for a 15' & 35' cliff jump. Good times! Several other hikers were unprepared for the depth of water and the technical passages due to the extra water.

A great hike through a remote Canyon, there is no trail, most of the journey is through the dry creek bed. If there had been lots of rain in the recent past few days the trek is more challenging. The Narrows bypass is a little bit tough, but was my kids favorite part. According to the app journey was significantly longer than 10 miles. It’s tough to know exactly how far we went.

Not a single hiker on this trail. At the top added my rock to the monument. Fantastic views. I completed this hike two weeks ago. There was afternoon rainstorms but nothing to deter me. The wet rock sparkled and the raindrops were a welcome refreshing shower.

This is a great trail for families! Amazing location and relatively flat. Loved the pioneer register and the scramble up to the tanks. Very cool drive to the trailhead also!

Fantastic scenery!

Awesome!! Gonna need a 4WD vehicle. We rented a Jeep Rubicon and owned this very rough and rocky road. Even crossed a river.

Good views. Great hike, when you get to the loop I suggest heading right. Because it’s steep elevation really quick and then all downhill for the majority of the hike

This is beautiful hike. The first 1/4 mile is uphill but then you drop into a small canyon area that offers some beautiful views. The trail is easy and there a few places for shade. The weather wasn’t that great when we went as it was raining on and off again. We checked with the ranger regarding the weather and she said that this trail does not really have any flash flood risks. The bridge is breathtaking. It was amazing to see such a beautiful structure in nature. Once you get close to the bridge, you will want to follow the cairns to guide your path. It’s definitely worth adding this small hike to your list.
