This trail was within walking distance of my campsite and although it is not a very long or a difficult trail the views were amazing. I walked passed the prairie dog area and there was the trailhead. I got out early in the morning and was the only one on the trail. The temperature was relatively cool but the horseflies were driving me nuts. The trail followed the rim of a small part of the canyon, hence the name. The canyon colors were on full display and the depth of the canyon was easily seen up close and personal.
The trail is a loop so I started on the prairie side of the trail and finished with the canyon rim side on the way back. The prairie side had great views of the other side of the park with the colorful vistas. The rim side of the trail overlooks the canyon.The prairie side of the trail with red rock in the backgroundThe white rock background off of the prairie sideI like the mix of colorsTrying to get the depth of the canyonLooking down at the canyons layersFinally got a picture of the entrance on the way out.
