I hiked in to the Dinky Line Campsite at sunset on February 27th. I didn't get to enjoy that part of the hike because I was trying to get there before dark. The Dinky Line Campsite is nice. After a rainy night, some friends met me and we hiked to Hobb's Cabin. It isn't a very interesting trail, but it's not difficult either. After another rainy night, we hiked out on the North Rim. A much better trail. I would recommend this hike to anyone.
