If you are in relatively good shape and enjoy hiking, this is a great, not-too-difficult hike. Begin by taking Route 89 East through Logan Canyon. Park across the road from the Guinavah-Malibu campground and walk all the way to the top of the campground to access the trailhead. The trail begins by switchbacking up a modestly steep area that is fairly exposed--sunblock and water are a must. Then after 1 mile or so you enter coniferous forest, and begin to traverse along a rocky promontory for another 1 mile. Views from here are awesome, you can see up and down the canyon, and the changing vegetation is very cool. The trail then switchbacks steeply down for about 3/4 of a mile, linking up with the River Nature Trail. Take a left and head West on the River Nature Trail, enjoy the interpretive signs, and arrive back at the Guinavah-Malibu campground.
