Did this first thing in the morning (and I’d suggest you do that also). Also took advice to hike the trail COUNTER CLOCKWISE. It makes a difference. Initially you have a steep descent into the canyon. The trail meanders up and down going through sand,...More

The trail isn’t as good or scenic as others in the park, but it does have the advantage of being a lot less busy. When we did the hike there was no one else doing it. The river was dry in May so not much...More

This hike does not have any specific attraction as such, but it is one of the few medium sized trails without going in the back-country. You go down in the canyon and there are many ups and downs, and lots of walking on sand. The...More

Great hike through random terrain, lots of hills and scenery, just under 6 miles. This was our last hike after 4 days of hiking. This is appropriate for anyone that has some level of conditioning. And a perfect way to end or start if you...More

On a trip to hike the big 5 Utah national parks, my wife and I hiked this trail as our first hike of the day in early October 2016. This trail has lots of slickrock to climb at points and, while a wonderful loop trail,...More

This was our only real hike during our stay in Canyonlands. We left from Neck Spring and it took about 4 hours for us to complete the loop. We stopped a few times (we are seniors) and loved the two springs with all the trees,...More

This hike is just under 9km (5.5 miles) and is delightful. We loved the relics of the cowboy era and the scenery. The path is easy to follow, with rock cairns, and is a true hiking trail. No bikes here. Very peaceful place and some...More

It's isolated. I only saw one other group of hikers on it. Being a loop, big plus! I took my 13 year old kid on it, she handled it great. I am glad I left my 10 year old at home, it is a pretty...More

This ia a nearly six-mile loop. If you start going towards the Shafer Canyon lookout and up from there, it's a little bit easier of a hike. We went the normal way which takes you down into a canyon. You walk below the rims for...More
