Nice part that goes up Casner Canyon on a rather steep path with most of the views closer to the top.
At the crossing with Damifino go right uphill on a well maintained trail.
But you want some leg and arm protection. So no shorts.
The trail goes uphill and becomes a steep trail closer to the end and the scrubs block the trail at some points.
Crossing a fence and after about 200 yards to trail bends to the right.
From this point on the trail goes mostly south. But it isn't really a trail, just follow the cairns. The trail runs more or less parallel to the rim that is still too far away.
You can see and hear the cars as you near the road at the Vista point. Normally a very busy place with a lot of tour jeep.
There is no trail sign at the vista point.
Take the dirt road downhill, this is the bad part of the loop. Not for the views but for the traffic.
Passing the parking of Munds Wagon Trail, the trail head is on the right side of the road and is well marked.
Take the Munds Wagon Trail all the way back to the car.
Casner Canyon can also be hiked as a stand alone hike starting at Grasshopper parking. But you have to cross Oak Creek and that is best done in summer. But this isn't the best hike for the summer as this hike is exposed and steep.
Hiking time: 1 Hour 40 Minutes to the Vista point. 20 Minutes to the Munds Wagon Trail Head. 35 Minutes to the Car.
4 Hours 15 Minutes for the entire loop.
