Rocks and not tree cover makes this a very hot short hike. Overall is good interesting hike but simple not the best Canyon hikes in the Parks since you are on top of the Canyon and not in the Canyon.

Still worth doing if you have an hour or two but best combined with other hikes in the area like Boom Lake, Stanely Glacier, Ink Pods etc...

Went there with a woman who was wearing high heels. A tourist bus stopped and a bunch of people got out wearing boots with snow cleats. The guide made a big deal about the dangers of the place. We went down the hill and slid around on the ice and went back up. The woman wearing high heels did not fall down. It is a bit of a hike up the path from the bottom. I would not pay money for a guided tour and cleats.

It is a beautiful scenic walk but if your going to take it start from the top and only walk as far as the signs go. I think its somewhere around a 2 km walk each way. (that is a guesstimate as I have no way to measure true distance.) There are wonderful walking trails all the way down to the mouth of the river. I was told that there is a really nice starting spot down at i think its call 7th bridge (it might be 6th bridge.) It may not look like too much of a hike but by the time we reached the top its around 6+ km uphill and we were dead on our feet and then had another 6 or so km to walk back down. We could hardly move by the time we got to the car. all in all though i would do the hike again, but starting from the top.
