“A fun trail following cairns and a wash, scrambling bolders and a pour off to see Devil's Hall slot.”— debra greutman
At the end of the first mile, there will be a sign indicating that the trail will be following the wash with boulder scrambles and following cairns. If you stay in the wash, you'll be on the trail. At this point it is another mile to Devil's Hall. Just before the hall you'll have to scramble a pour off called "Hikers Staircase" at Devil's gate; watch out for the pools of water at the top. After getting to the top of the wash, you can then see Devil's Hall, an impressive slot canyon. This is a great place to sit awhile and enjoy the bird songs and wind echoing in the slot canyon and enjoy a little picnic.
Once you've had your fill, simply retrace your steps and return the way that you came.
