Hiked this in the heat of the day. It was pretty but did not see anything that was worth the heat past the overlooks. It had not rained for 4 months so everything was about as dry as it could be....Overlooks are nice but not sure the rest of the hike is worth it.
We stopped here for lunch after a severely rainy morning, not expecting a lot - but to our suprise the canyon was running large waterfalls, colored terra cotta as the desert washes drained. A beautiful suprise.
This is a very short trail and great for kids (old or young) who enjoy big boulders and changing terrain. Lots of photo possibilities and scrambling around the rocks. It's easy to get into and out of along a short path. young and old will enjoy this walk through the hardened ash deposits from long dead volcanos.
