Chose this trail based on the high reviews. Not what I expected. There were a few beautiful sites, but mostly all you see is gray rocks, nothing lush or green. Trails more difficult than expected (and I'm a healthy person), would not take anyone out of shape or children. You're under trees for most of the hike and far from water. We actually went off the trail and made our way down to the creek because we wanted to be by the water. Wasted half a day there, would not go again. Trail does not loop around either, you just have to turn around and go back the way you came. I'm sure other trails are much prettier. Not recommended unless you like looking at rocks.
