Having hiked extensively on both coasts and in the rockies, appalachians and smoky mountains, this still ranks as one of my favourite day hikes. Starting at the foot of the canyon, rambling over some rocks and up ladders to snake through a narrow crevice, then gradually reaching the summit, this is a spectacular trail. The descent is much easier, and much of the hike back is through a dry river bed. The kids really liked the part of the trail with hundreds of small rock statues that have been assembled by hikers passing through. There are only a few tricky areas where the ladders are a little broken or don't quite reach the top, and young kids or older adults might need assistance.
