We hiked to the top of the ridge of the trail and back. We chose not to complete the 11 miles. The views are stunning at the top. Most anyone can walk the trail if they take ther time. You will glad you made the decision to include the trail in your itinerary.

This hike is a nice length (maybe 1.5 miles each way but you can go further of course) and not too much change in elevation so it's great for a wide range of ages. It follows the Piedra River and is gorgeous. We've done it 3 or 4 times with the family and always love it.

The first mile is great. Very pretty . Easy hike . Wear pants if going further , the grass in the meadows will rub your legs

Loved this trail. Try to get there early in the morning to avoid the summer heat and hordes of hikers. It's 11 miles long, so unless you want to hike the whole trail and have a car at the other end, you will need to hike in as far as you want and then backtrack. I hiked in 1 hour... More

When you reach the top of the canyon, the view is breathtaking. I would definitely hike it again, given the chance.

It was a beautiful drive up the hill to the top. Gorgeous views, vistas, and wonderful adventure. At the top, we did a short brief hike up to Piedra Falls! Very easy hike and well worth it. The falls were wonderful!

I did this review today with my 16 yr old daughter after finding it on Trip Advisor. So glad we found it. Stunning views and awesome hike along the river. We made it to the bridge before having to turn around due it getting late and thunderstorm moving in. We will definitely do this one again when we come back... More

All I can say is that this is the most beautiful trail I've ever been on! I only we had given ourselves more time to see even more of it. A must see!

The trail starts off by dropping into the river gorge, and you get to walk under the rock walls that were carved out by the river in the past. Rock climbers use this area, so if you have little guys, they may get the treat of watching a few hardy types clambering up! The trail meanders into an open meadow... More
