Short and splendid, this incredibly scenic area features a waterfall, a creek, a slot canyon, a cave, a mini-rock / rope climb, cliffs to scale—oh, my! So much is the span of a short out and back trail (2 miles total). It’s like a mini-Zion. The bad news is that it has the crowds to match. (Sigh.) (Reality pic is the last one in the slide show.) Thankfully everyone is respecting the natural beauty and leaving no trace. The good news is that solitude it just an upcliff scramble or mini-rope rock climb away…
My friend, Robin, easily managing the moki steps in the pics below – looks more treacherous than it is.
Beyond the Moki steps, you’ll find more scrambling “opportunities” and more great views.
Getting there: Exit 22 towards UT-228 N, right on old highway 91 to the Red Cliffs National Conservation area
