We hiked up here last month. It was one of the easier hikes in the area. The views were incredible. It's a little bit out of town, but it was worth the drive. Recommended.

Easy walk, some shade. At canyon's end, you can easily continue on climbing the boulders/rocks. Even if you don't go too far, the views are great! We did try to find the Fay Canyon Arch. We think we found the trail (several small rock pylons...More

I came with a healing ankle. It was a lovely flat hike trip with sight seeing included. I don't love hiking and this was worthwhile for easy going, lovely vistas. I recommend it.

Perfect way to avoid the hot sun and get in some trail miles. Up and back only to the Arch view (pay attention at the half mile point, because it's not marked) makes for a great experience and works up a hardy lunch appetite.

Get up close and personal with this moderate hike through the valley. Close to town, this hike takes you into the middle of the canyon with outcroppings, wonderful flora, and dried up creek beds. Well worth the trip especially if you are tight on time...More
