Hit this trail up on our way back from a ski trip to Brianhead. I've traveled this road dozens of times and never even noticed the roadside TH before. This is well worth an hour of your time on the drive through. Based on the precipitation in the area over the last week, there was a lot of fresh "carving" in the sand. The wash was muddy though, which is where it seems they want you to walk when possible (to avoid the cryptobiotic soil, etc). That said, there are a couple of well-worn paths above the wash that most seem to travel. The recent rains also made the colors in the canyon vibrant. Cool place.

A note on the official hike stats. It should say 1.6 miles round trip, which is consistent with the official route and the TH signage--not 3.8 mi.
