One of the best ways to see our natural wonders is by lacing up your hiking boots and getting out there in the clean, fresh air. Here’s a short, easy hike that will take you to one of the state’s most popular spots for photography, and you’ll soon see why shutterbugs love this view.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
During summer months, this trail can be very busy. For a more solitary experience, try to visit on a weekday morning when the temperature is cool and most of the trail is shaded by the canyon.
