This short loop trail is full of surprises. The Anasazi granary at the end of the trail would be enough on its own to make the hike worthwhile. But as you walk to the granary you will pass several other points of interest that combine to make this a truly extraordinary hike. In particular there is a spectacular view of the Colorado River from the upper rim of Cataract Canyon. Also from the rim you can look down into Surprise Valley, a large sunken valley on a plateau between the rim and the bottom of Cataract Canyon. Trail: Easy, well maintained.
