This diverse hike has something for almost everyone-from high alpine wilderness to a walk through a narrow limestone river gorge. There are also several nice views of the Cedar Breaks along the way. Finally, during most of the summer you will be unlikely to meet other hikers along this trail, and the solitude makes it an even more pleasant way to spend a day. Although the hike can easily be completed in one day, many people prefer to extend it to a two or three day backpack trip. There is plenty to see.
