Don't be scared off by the reviews that talk about the steps. They are well maintained concrete steps with hand railings. Just take your time and you will be fine. Canyon is very scenic and has many cliff dwellings...not large multistory abodes like some cliff structures because these are fitted underneath sculpted sandstone overhangs. Heard there were more than 300 within the area. Trail goes around a peninsula type land form that they are calling an island. You walk past multiroom one story structures and see many others on the opposite of the gorge.
