My two six year olds loved it and didn't have any trouble. All of us slipped a time or two so wear good shoes. Reward yourself with some pie at the Gifford House afterward.

My wife and I hiked Cohab Canyon from the Hwy 24 side, parking near the trailhead for the Hickman Bridge and Navajo Knobs. The hike from this side gets a few views of Capitol Dome and rock faces on the north side of the park but no views of the Visitor Center side of the park. Although the Visitor Center trailhead (near the campground) is much steeper (400 ft. rise over about 1/2 mile) you get some great views of the park's north and west sides as well as the Fremont River. Considering the short length of this hike you can get some great views almost from the start. For about the same amount of effort we much preferred the Chimney Rock hike on the West side of the park off Hwy 24 on the way to Torrey. Hip and Hop

Our first hike after visiting the visitor center was the Cohab Canyon - a nice hike. The elevation gain was minimal (I think 400 or so feet), most of which were switchbacks at the beginning...not too bad. Some of the trail in the canyon followed the sandy wash, but otherwise it was mostly hike on solid and crumbled rock. As there were rain clouds in the area, we did not go all the way to Highway 24, rather, from the campground, we hiked to the Fuita overlooks (a shorter spur hike with some minimal elevation gain). After the overlooks, we returned from the way we came. We did come accross some other people, but the trail was quiet and natural.

After the hike, it was a short walk to the Gifford House and Barn. Hmmmm...a small $1 ice cream was perfect.

If you could, it might be nice to arrange a car or bike shuttle from Grand Wash and/or Highway 24... No bathrooms at trailhead, but the visitor center is within a mile.

Walk out of campground and the trailhead is right there. Switchbacks make for easy climb up. Fantastic canyon scenery. Enjoyed the hike !

The beauty of this hike is that you can turn around whenever you are ready. (Which helps with little ones)

We did lots of bouldering in the canyon and explored the slot canyons on the right (When coming from the campground). Cool spot to explore, and its right out of the campground--no need to drive to the trailhead.
