A myriad loops are possible. The easiest hike starts at the Canyon Meadow Staging Area and is a simple flat out-and-back stroll on shady Stream Trail. For a bit more elevation gain, any of the mid-slope trails, such as Orchard, Bridle, and French, can be combined with the Stream Trail for a pleasant, West Ridge Trail not too hard loop. The toughest circuits in the park (though still really moderate hikes) climb from the canyon floor to either ridge line. You can create a loop which varies in length, from as short as 3 miles, to more than 8 miles.
