The proximity of this canyon to the city makes it the perfect mid-week destination for a quick getaway. Plenty of people make the drive to the top for an after-work workout in the summertime. Trails get quite crowded on the weekends, and if you're hiking on a bike day, watch out for traffic. It's a great canyon for a weekend picnic or barbecue.
Pros: Good picnic area
Cons: Weekend crowds
