An incredible driving adventure along the edge of countless canyons in the shadow of towering buttes and high cliffs. Descend thrilling switchbacks, visit dramatic arches and rock formations, hike to Indian ruins, and camp quietly far away from others. Most of the trail is easy and relatively flat. Several exceptions include Murphy Hogback and Hardscrabble Hill, both steep, rocky and challenging. You frequently drive near high cliffs and sheer walls. Suitable for stock high-clearance vehicles under normal conditions. Check at the visitor center for possible rock slides or trail blockages. The trail is well marked and easy to follow with few spurs. Watch for mountain bikers.

Steep decline into the valley and a long trail.... Unless you are planning on camping inside the park, I would just drive in for 2 hours at the most and turn around. We learned the hard way that it was a 100 mile loop...... Beautiful views but redundant through out the trail.
