This hike provides one of the premier vistas in the state, but you do have to work for it—the climb to the summit is more than 1.0 mile.The Rock Garden is a rock climber’s delight, as you make your way over and around the huge sandstone boulders. If you want to do some hiking in the Worlds End region, you should know that hiking here means climbing. Canyon Vista is a good example of a typical out-of-the-gorge trek. The summit is 1,750 feet above sea level, but because of the switchbacks and lengthy circumnavigation, you’ll end up walking more than 1.0 mile to reach the top. But the top is where the views are—some of the best in the state. It’s difficult to describe a vista.
