Before you hike down into the canyon valley and into Tuff Canyon, be sure to visit the 3 scenic vista platforms that give you splendid views of the Canyon.  My favorite vista is the East Overlook, which allows you to see where the canyon ends.

After you've seen the canyon from above, you can take a separate trail down to the canyon valley and into Tuff Canyon.  The walls on each side of the canyon are quite impressive.

An easy and quick hike.  Must see!
