This hike is about 1.6 miles round trip with pretty good footing, and lots of places to stop and say ahhhhh. There are a lot of birds to view also. Not difficult, but wear good shoes.

Don't miss the views no matter where you stop along the NP drive. Put in for a hiking permit and witness beauty and solitude like none other
