    We went up the Peralta Trail and down Braks Canyon Trail. The hike was breath taking and we all found our way up easily enough but we managed to get lost three times on the way down. We felt compelled to follow the Cairns (Inookshuks) but they seemd to lead to viewpoints. In the end..we had to bushwack (never a good idea) as we could see the trail we had to be on but could never seems to get there. So...a beautiful hike on unmarked trails. It would be so nice if the Trails were marked like on so many others we have done...worth it though!!!

    The scenery is beautiful. i went in the middle of August on a weekday and was the only soul out there. There's lots of shade on the trail. At teh beginning of the trail, you come to a clearing. Be sure to go to the right up the rock wall and to not follow the boulders up the canyon.
