This ended up being a very cool final stop and hike of our eight days on the north rim of the Grand Canyon. The hike got pretty good reviews from the quick research I did at Jacob's Lake and even though I knew it would be a little warm for the pups, we went for it, as it was a short one, we would have the benefit of a little shade and we had a nice river to cool down in after.

The trail is listed as rugged and not maintained, but I thought there were several signs of some great trail condition and actually found it to be in pretty good shape for its route up the sheer cliff face. The views from the top make the hike worth it, as do the views of the Colorado towards Lee's Ferry, as one climbs. Jackie was a little winded going up, but the dogs and myself did just fine. After some pictures on the top, we headed back down at a more brisk pace to get the pups to water faster. They thoroughly enjoyed their dip in the Colorado and even I partook, having not showered in over a week. I am a little intrigued by this area and think there could definitely be some opportunities for further exploration during the cooler months.
