Enjoy the break from the Moab heat as you cross the creek, surrounded by trees. Then, a steep, rather difficult, narrow photogenic shelf is your route out of the canyon.
This trail used to be rated a 5, but was upgraded to a difficulty level of 6 due to erosion. This year, it's pushing a 7. Certain areas around the creek have washed out parts of the road, or left the trail with extreme obstacles.
We really enjoyed the trip down into the canyon, looking at multi-colored cliffs all around us. It was dry when we started the trail, and unfortunately, the creek was nothing more than puddles in places. This area is dangerous as flash floods could come at any time...keep your eye on the sky.
