Primitive, but beautiful canyon. Unimproved roads are rutty and bumpy. Don't go at night, use good judgment.

I drove out there to hike around 9:30am a few days ago. After a 5km drive on a dusty dirt road, I found that it was closed. There were no signs, however...just a chain link fence that was locked.

Scenic beauty galore. A fabulous place to hike but challenging for those with balance issues. Hiking poles are helpful here. The drive out from San Carlos is a bit rough but doable, even in our Prius.

You can spend at least 2 hours here. Gravel road to get there, but worth the trip. Go in the morning before it heats up. Very interesting place, especially if you are into rocks and geology.

It was nice to see palm trees and senita cacti on one trail. The hike was not difficult for me except climbing the ladder added a little challenge. We went at mid morning and most hike was under shade.
