Easy and fairly short tail with excellent views of the rock formations. The sandstone colors of the surrounding rock cover the entire color spectrum.

Start the hike from the parking area. At the beginning, the trail is rather sandy. Further in, the trail gets easier and has wonderful views of the surrounding rocks and there is interesting desert vegetation. The colors in the rocks are incredible! This is one one the prettier hikes in the park.
