    Beautiful scenery, a very good side tour to come to this park.

    Fun trail. Mid-April on a Friday, the weather was perfect (mid-50s) and just a couple other groups on the trail. The sandstone sections were my favorite. Not a lot of vertical on this trail, mostly pretty level. The trails are pretty well marked with cairns, but the signs aren't terribly clear, so I backtracked a couple of times when I realized that I was on the wrong trail. I ran this trail, and I admit that I was a bit slower than I expected. It was hard to keep a good pace in the dry creekbed on the south section of the Big Spring trail (southwest section of this loop.) Also I frequently had to stop to scan for the next cairn. I had a good time, though. I recommend it.

    This was a great hike. Very dramatic scenery. Not at all crowded (we saw two other small groups all day). I would rate this, however, as the most strenuous hike I've ever done in Canyonlands/Utah. We took the loop clockwise because we read that the incline on the finishing couple of miles in that direction was more gradual. While true, either direction offers significant challenges. I still might recommend the clockwise direction, however, because of about 700 vertical feet that have to be climbed through a boulder field about a mile after the intersection with the Upheaval Canyon trail. There were several exposed areas that I would rather tackle on an ascent rather than a descent. A negative to this direction, though, at this time of year is that we spent the last ~2.5 hours hiking in the shade of the canyon wall, and it was fairly cool. Overall a fantastic hike! Would recommend 10/10.

    Wonderful hike to see some great pictograph panels that are well preserved. Worth the long drive on the dirt road. If the road is dry when you go it’s an easy drive. We took the road back to Green River when leaving and we’re pleasantly surprised by the scenery!

    Did this hike on a Saturday in late September. Got to the trailhead around 7:30 am and we were one of the first few cars there. The trail eventually got a little busier, but it never felt crowded by any means. Took about 5.5 hours to do the 11+ mile loop (including a 30 minute stop), but it never seemed overly difficult. The trail is well marked overall. A few tricky spots along the way, but those spots are a lot of fun to navigate. The landscape is just stunning! Definitely one of the highlights of our nearly week-long trip to Moab. I'd highly recommend putting this hike on your list.
