Short and sweet hike!

Great, short hike in Red Rock Crossing. Make sure to check out the hundreds of cairns at Buddha Beach. Beautiful views of Cathedral Rock.  Lots of places to relax and have lunch, with picnic tables near the parking lot.  Lots of parking, good amount of shade down near the creek.  

Good for all skill levels. Very busy, lots of families (especially on the weekends!).

As with all outdoor adventures, make sure to follow Leave No Trace principals.
