This hike is in the Boots and Burgers book. I took the crack (yellow trail) down and the ridgeline (blue trail) back.
The trailhead had parking for 10 or so cars with more across the street. The first .2 miles or so are on a dirt road. After that you drop into a wash. You will see signs with the yellow marking from time to time but also side trails here and there. Stay in the wash/cracks all the way until right before the river. The wash will be choked out by Tamarisk but the trail will go up and around on the right and you will see the river. The slot canyon is cool and there is one spot with a rope. It's only seven feet down and you can slide it. The rope would help coming up but if you do the loop you won't have to worry about it. When you get to the river do the horseshoe hike around the cove and there is a neat picnic area with table,grill, and outhouse. I think the boaters use it and there is a self pay station on a first come basis. Would be cool to Kayak,picnic, and hike up to crack. From there your on the blue trail. just go up the ridge and follow it back. It merges with the Yellow trail when you are about .9 miles from the trailhead. This was a fun little loop.

The second part in the book is the burger. They suggest Jersey's Grill. It doesn't open until 11 on Wednesday's so I had an hour to wait. I went over and walked the London Bridge while I waited. It was cool and I liked the character of it and the cool light poles. Back to Jersey's Grill and I had the burger with the Philly meat on it. MmmMmm Tasty!! I had a fun time for a half day in Lake Havasu. :y:

Haz lists this as one way. My mileage is for a balloon loop.
