Comments: I have no clue about that little cave. I've lived near this canyon since I was born. The best time (in my opinion) to hike this trail, if you want solitude, is the early early morning. But even if you can't make it early, it's still pretty deserted. There are several "non-trails" and some newer trails that have been cleared recently. The vandalism really isn't all that bad... it seems like the markers disappear halfway through (if you're coming from the park). Lots of graffiti on the bridge, but some of it is pretty creative. Depending on your personality, it probably won't be a problem.
