    Short but steep in places. Hike all of it, the rainbow section does not disappoint.

    A must if you are in the area. Once you reach the top make sure you do the Trail of sleeping rainbows.

    Just wanted to do this as a little warm up before doing a longer hike in escalante and it was perfect for that! Only a mile and a half ish it’s a good way to stretch your legs and see some pretty views and petrified rock! First .5mi is pretty much all up hill though so be prepared and the last bit is just going down the same switchbacks

    Great hike. An easy hike after the initial push up the hill. Definitely should do the optional loop. So many petrified trees!
