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 marked by cairns.
Going it clockwise, it starts with an easy descent into the canyon, and then follows its course to a small spring. We saw some deer there, and lots of chipmunks.
The trail then slowly ascends, which is still only moderately exhausting, even at 93 F. However, after about 6 km, the trail leads up to the rim via the slickrock, and partially is really difficult to negotiate. For older persons, it may be a problem to have hiked more than half of the way and then being faced with a part of the trail which they are not able to get through.
If you are fit and not afraid of some scramling over rocks, this is a really excellent trail.
