    I'm so glad I went clockwise. It's about a mile (almost) straight down into the Syncline going clockwise. Coming back up was more gradual, and because of the change in scenery and more interesting scramble, it helped to take my mind off my aching legs a bit. I think it's worth doing some geology research before hiking this, so you have an idea what you are looking at, like the Syncline Navajo sandstone, and the shale etc. and how it formed. Yes, its strenuous, and I only saw 9 other people, on a Sunday in May, so there is a chance you may not see another soul on a week day, or off-season. I will be making a video of this hike when I get chance, it will be on my YouTube Channel, A Nomad for Nature.

    If you love a nice challenge, this is a great hike. Hike clockwise so you get the benefits of the afternoon shade. Lots of rock scrambling, all the while having epic, ever changing views. Parking is limited so go early. A refreshingly remote hike, as compared to the bustle of the park. Bring extra water and sunscreen.

    Ample parking due to sparse pandemic crowds. Lot probably fits 15 cars. Incredible views after an easy 1.8 mile hike in.

    Breathtaking vistas on the two mile round trip hike. Many tall stairs and uneven terrain. Bring plenty of water.

    Simple little walk out to a nice Overlook point. Watch out as you get close to the end as the cliffs go way down. Watch the kiddos.

    Started around 8.20am - met a handful of people. Having now done this once counter clockwise - there is no way I would do it the other way around. You get the Boulder field out of the way early and the climb back out going counter direction is basically a staircase in comparison to scrambling up the boulder field....

    Great hike along the cliff edge with incredible 360 view of multiple canyons at end.

    This was a nice flat out and back to a great view. This was the last day of the hiking part of my trip and I was tired out so this was the perfect closing hike for me

    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.
