Highly recommend this hike with young children. It's pretty short, the kids can climb rocks, and the scenery changes throughout. Lots of photo opportunities. You'll see amazing colors, wild flowers, a mini arch, a slot canyon, and just amazingly colorful rocks.

The White Domes Trail has a lot to offer. There are tons of different colors in the rocks and the views are tremendous. There is a small slot canyon to enjoy, and there are even some leftover movie props to be seen along the trail....More
