This walk is fairly level and the path is not very rocky. Good view of the canyon. The climbing is all at the end of the trail if you want to climb.

We hiked up here last month. It was one of the easier hikes in the area. The views were incredible. It's a little bit out of town, but it was worth the drive. Recommended.

This hike was extremely friendly and easy. It is a flat walk with great photo ops and views. We were a family of 12, with ages 1 yr to seniors. It was good for all. I recommend this hike if traveling with small children, but...More
