This is a 6 mile round trip hike to the top of Horse Mesa with views from the north rim and back down. Hiked together with Jacks Canyon Trail it is a 22 mile loop. Hot Loop Trail goes another 6.9 miles from where we stop into the rugged Munds Mountain Wilderness. This strenuous and at times rocky hike has spectacular views from the top with beautiful slickrock areas on the way up making it well worth the effort. We measured a 812 foot elevation change.
