There's plenty of shade in the valley and cold water as you go in and out of the trees. The first mile is crushed gravel before making it to a well defined dirt trail.
If you are looking for something more difficult and a view from the top of the canyon creek, check out Hanging Valley Trail #247. Trail #247 will take you to Vigilant Overlook where you'll look down to the canyon floor below you.
