I love this trail! Last time I went here, it was back in January. There is supposed to be a waterfall at the end, but at the time all the water must have been frozen.
There is a lot of going from rock to rock. My husband describes it like Hawaii; when you step over from rock to rock by the beach.
This trail is moderate. I would come with shoes with grippy soles since the rocks get pretty slick with the dirt on it.

I really enjoyed this trail. The scenery changed so much during the hike. It started off very plain and boring with loose gravel and not much to see. By the time you got halfway in it changed drastically and you could see crashed automobiles, which was wild. Walking over rusted Pistons was interesting. Colors started to get more vivid in the rocks and vegetation. The trail itself goes from very easy to challenging. Many people said this was easy but in my personal opinion it was challenging. I have little upper body strength and I'm short, therefore some of the ropes were difficult. I required assistance. I also suffer from anxiety. Some of the drop offs didn't help with that. I enjoyed turning corners and finding several hot springs to choose from to soak in. And the finale at the Colorado Rover was spectacular. The views were well worth the bruises, cuts and scrapes I got. Keep in mind this is a popular trail and sometimes the rope areas get congested with people going both directions. You might get stuck waiting for a while. I would suggest several items to bring with you for this hike. GLOVES to protect your hands from hot and sharp rocks, WATER SHOES to change into toward the end to protect your hiking shoes from getting wet and also the rocks in the river are sharp. WATER. BIODEGRADABLE TOILET PAPER as there are no portapotties and this can be a long day, SNACKS. SUNSCREEN. Also, please take your trash out with you. I was disappointed to see so much trash all over this otherwise lovely trail. It's not that hard to carry it out if you carried it in! LEAVE NATURE BEAUTIFUL so everyone can enjoy it.
