At 2.4 miles roundtrip, Robe Canyon makes for an excellent day hike, as long as you can manage the switchbacks coming out of the canyon.
Here’s what else you need to know before you go.
-The trail is narrow on the switchbacks. If you’re in descent, surrender the right of way to hikers coming uphill, as this is proper trail etiquette.
-Stay on the path and watch your footholds near the river. There are some steep rocks and the canyon walls grow steeper as you hike. At several points, there are waterfalls that flow over the path. Aluminum hiking poles are recommended.
