  • You can hike for a far or as short as you want and there is plenty of trees to see! Super interesting!

  • Great hike - views were amazing! We did north loop only and had plenty of great views.
  • We really enjoyed our hike. We only took the north end of the loop due to time, but we really enjoyed it. Beautiful scenery & it was a cooler day (low 60's) & very sunny, so perfect weather. It would be a very hot hike in summer b/c there is very little shade. Our hiking poles came in handy for ascending & descending some of the washes. The petrified trees were very unique & interesting.
