As the other reviewers have pointed out, this is a short and easy hike that leads you into a canyon where Burro Mesa pours water off a short cliff when it is the wet season.

The hike is mostly through a gravel wash, which makes it challenging to get traction.  The rock formations are very attractive also.  When I did this hike, the canyon was completely dry.

As a side trip, there is another adjacent canyon next to Burro Mesa Pouroff.  It is "off trail", but it offers another nice canyon and some large boulders.
