This is a great spot to look deep inside the Black Canyon. Take your time to absorb the amazing scenes in front of you. Very cool destination, but hang on to your kids!

Extremely challenging hiking and not recommended for the average hiker. No established trail and lots of loose rock and boulders. Wear a helmet and protective gear. Not good for large groups as it is so steep that boulders often don't stop. Check with the park...More
