For an Easier Hike -- Do It Backwards

This ia a nearly six-mile loop. If you start going towards the Shafer Canyon lookout and up from there, it's a little bit easier of a hike. We went the normal way which takes... read more

It's isolated. I only saw one other group of hikers on it. Being a loop, big plus! I took my 13 year old kid on it, she handled it great. I am glad I left my 10 year old at home, it is a pretty long hike, and takes some effort. I really enjoyed it and would do it again.... More

This ia a nearly six-mile loop. If you start going towards the Shafer Canyon lookout and up from there, it's a little bit easier of a hike. We went the normal way which takes you down into a canyon. You walk below the rims for awhile, lots of uphills and downhills. You see where people did settle in the canyon... More

In between, you'll cross a couple springs that supply water into the canyon... More

There are some nice views to be had on this trail and it is not overly difficult, but we saw it described in one trail book as "easy", which is absolutely not the case. A lot of the time, it isn't difficult, but there is a stretch where you are either climbing up or scrambling down some pretty steep slickrock... More

This trail is close to the entrance of the Canyonlands NP Island in the Sky area. It is a loop which for me is always a plus, and category moderate, which is kind of an average of the very easy and the quite difficult stretches it consists of. At all times, it is easy to follow, being well defined and... More
