We didn't make it to the end as it was close to getting dark so we had to turn around after walking for about 70 minutes in one direction. We still had to go another 0.5 miles probably to get to Chicken's Point. We had...More

Easy access, pretty easy trail with a steady climb to the wonderful views on Chicken Point. Luckily we met two locals that encouraged us to "keep going," taking in the breath-taking trails of Hog Heaven and High on the Hog!!

A great connector to the north end of Chapel Trail - which was our favorite. Chapel trail ends is 0.75 miles long and ends at Chapel of the Holy Cross. Little Horse is relatively flat and quite wooded (so weak on views) for the first...More

This hike brings you up to Chicken point. Along the hike you get varying and beautiful views of the cliffs. Chicken point is beautiful, surrounding you with nearby red rock cliffs and a long view across the valley.

This is an easy to moderate trail. You will get some beautiful views of Courthouse Butte, Bell Rock and Cathedral Rock from the trail. The highlight is Chicken Point at the end.

We loved this not too difficult hike. Took us about 1 1/2 hours and was the perfect length to get out of the car and stretch our feet. We liked that it joined up with other trails and honestly, you couldn't beat the views from...More

It’s a nice 4 mile out and back trail that is partially shaded with a gentle incline finishing at Chicken Point - a cool viewpoint.

Took me 45 minutes to get to chicken point. But I could've done it faster or slower. The guide book says to allow for two hours round-trip.
