We planned our trip based on the National Park information and allowed a day for this "6 hour" hike. We are middle-aged, regular hikers, far from peak fitness, fully acclimatised to the altitude and partially acclimatised to the heat. We walked up slowly, mostly in the shade of the canyon taking plenty of photos. We came down at a reasonable pace. Round trip time two and a half hours.
If you are a regular hiker I suggest you ignore the park's timings and make your own assessment based on ascent, mileage, weather and your acclimatisation.
It's a great hike, wonderful rocks, a good route up and a fabulous balcony walk at the end with great views of the plateau.
