On a scale of 1-10 in degree of difficulty the Fay Canyon trail is a 2 for its simplicity and ease. However, when you get to the head of Fay Canyon (about 1.5 miles of easy walking) you come upon a rock slide. Climb up the rocks for a hundred or so feet and you will be rewarded with a... More

We did this trail with twin five year old boys. We only made it to the point where you turn to climb up to see the amazing arch (which we climbed up to see). Leading up to that point was a tranquil and flat trail suitable for everyone. We enjoyed the manageable challenge to climb up to see the arch.... More

Love this quiet, easy hike. Beautiful. Did not go over the rock slide at the end because it was nearing dark, but would have done so earlier in the day.

This trail is pretty flat and easy, good for dogs or for those who want a leisurely stroll. The trial is only about a mile long, but we did enjoy it.

Hiked this to the end of the trail then over a few boulders and up a rock hill to see amazing views. The trail signed did not encourage you to climb the rocks but the view on top looking back was my favorite part. was later told there are ruins up there too but didn't know to look for them....

This 2 mile rt offers pleasant walking and great views at the end. It's easy to find and there's plenty of trailhead parking. There are many other nearby trails to get more hiking in the day.

This is a nice, easy hike, but if you wander up to the arch, or to the top of the rocks at the end of the trail, you can definitely increase your intensity level. Both side trips are worth the time and have amazing views when you get to the top of them. The trail itself is a nice mix... More

There is a parking lot at the trailhead, and you cross the street to access the Fay Canyon trail. This hike is perfect for any level, including kids or people who are less mobile. It was flat and shaded. At the end, there is a rock that you can climb on for a few minutes. I wouldn't do this one... More
