This fairly flat hike casually saunters through cool alpine desert communities en route to a front-row encounter with the majestic Northgate Peaks and the canyon panorama beyond. To the south lie the North and South Guardian Angels; to the west, Greatheart Mesa towers over all. The southwestern view is especially striking, as the West Temple peak out above an incredible array of pinnacles and ridgelines.
This hike is very moderate, and reasonable for most groups. Take a picnic lunch to the lookout and dine amongst the quiet stone giants and stately Ponderosa pines.
