If you are looking for a short hike without significant elevation changes, this is an excellent choice. The scenery is beautiful. The official trail ends at a rock slide. If you are able, climb the rocks and look back for a spectacular view.

Good exposure to rocks and vegetation. There is even a little shade if you look for it. It is nice to be able to make it to the end of the trail. This one is clearly marked.

The trail in to Fay Canyon is flat and is easy for any physical ability. Once at the canyon anyone can climb to achieve a view of the canyon and beyond. You may even see some trees twisted from Vortex energy.

This is a pretty short, easy hike until you come to the end of the maintained trail. Not much in the way of views along the way. At that point you have the option of hiking up some rocks to a good-sized ledge where there...More
