This trail head if off of Hwy 179and it leads to Chicken Point which will give you a great view. It can be a wind tunnel at Chicken Point being between two mountains. Going in and spending time at Chicken Point can take two hours ormore depending how long you spend at Chicken Point.

We stopped here on our way to Devil' Bridge trail. It offered great views. We only stayed about 45 minutes and it was worth every minute. Not a whole day stop but definitely worth a stop. Climb the hill and take a panoramic photo.

Hiked halfway up Bell Rock with 8 and 13 year old girls. They loved it! Great way to start our vacation and more thrilling and beautiful than Cathedral Rock.

This hike is about 4 miles roundtrip, and it connects to Mystic, Llama, and Bell Rock trails if you want to hike further. The hike in isn't too strenuous, and the hike out is GLORIOUS! There are a few rocky inclines, but nothing super steep. Great views on the way in and out, but holy cow! The hike out is... More

You have great views of Bell Rock here, and a nice short hike towards the back of it. It's an easy hike and you can make it longer because it connects to other nearby trails.

This trail is 1.4 miles one-way hiking to the Chicken Point. Not too difficult, but you'll definitely get a good workout. My wife and i did this around 5 pm hoping the sun won't be too strong. I would highly recommend this hike either in early morning or late evening during this time of the year. Once you get the... More

Moderately easy hike with excellent vistas, especially at the end at chicken point. The parking area is relatively small, so get there early. We found the signage helpful. The terrain was not difficult, but expect some rocky areas in 3-4 spots.

I needed a new hike today and the Little Horse Trail is now on my favorites list. The views were spectacular and there was plenty of shade along some parts of the trail. Best of all, when I arrived at Chicken Point, I was surprised to see the Pink Jeep Broken Arrow tour there. It was a great tour every... More

My wife and I hiked this trail to Chicken Point and back on a cool May morning. This trail is VERY peaceful. The lack of noise is noticeable. Round trip from our car to Chicken Point was about 3.8 miles. Out is slightly uphill but nothing too bad. We really enjoyed this hike as we were looking for something a... More
