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.

Flat 2 mile hike with amazing scenery. The trail follows a small stream into the canyon. Red Rock walls surround you. Just amazing

Fay Canyon trail is a very simple, easy hike about 1 mile in and 1 mile out. We passed several people with small children along the way. It's not a paved trail, but the dirt is very compact and it is mostly flat. The end...More
