Vernal, Utah Map

This is a great hike to start a day! Absolutely beautiful in the morning when the sun is just coming up.
Trailhead and trail are not marked, and can be difficult to find, but that makes this hike great because it is not crowded.

Great Hike! Brought my daughter and we had a great time. I also recommend the Three Kings Hike!

A hot tiring tails, but not too long that kids can make it, with a little encouragement. Took a 4,5,7 year old, and while we had lots of water breaks (bring lots!), they were able to keep going. Lots of hills.

Ran this midday and it was pretty hot, but generally runable. Lots of terrain change from the river, to the dirt mounds to the up and downs of the bag before the big boulders at the end where you get the best views. Climbing fown the rock side was unique.

Great place to take people that can't or don't want to walk far amazing petroglyphs I'd recommend not touching the petroglyphs because the oils on your fingers can wear out the petroglyphs the have waters tshirts and pop all on a trust system

Not really hard, lots of tree cover.

Loved the hike so beautiful...

Great hike. Beautiful views. Hard to find trailhead. I recommend bringing insect repellant. By the time we got to the arch the kids were ready to head back because of all the flies and gnats.

Loved it! Really hot and a little steeper than I expected but definately worth the climb. Trail isnt marked well so pay attention.
