Any good hikes near Wahweap this time of year?

I've always wanted to try an off season trip. I'm heading up to the Lake from So Cal with my 2 boys tomorrow (Sunday.) We will be hiking at Bryce on Monday, Wahweap by Monday night, and heading to my brothers in PHX Thursday am for turkey. We will be staying in the slip on the houseboat, and we rented a boat for Tuesday, and a tour of Antelope Canyon on Wednesday.

Unfortunately after I rented the boat, I found out the check out time is 10 am, with a return by 3, severely limiting out time. I was hoping to get out on foot and hike some canyons, something in summer we can't do much due to the heat.

Chaol Falls looks awesome (from Waynes old site, hike section), but at 8 miles, it's too far to complete in the time we have. Any other recommendations? Face canyon looks pretty good from Google maps. I've not explored Padre/Last Chance, as we always take the house boat straight up river to the Dangling area, maybe just explore Padre/Last Chance area and stop anywhere that looks promising.

Appreciate your thoughts.

If you've not done the Cookie Jar hike, that is one of my favorites - it's relatively easy hiking mostly on slick rock and the view from the top overlooking Padre Bay is amazing, especially this time of year. The hike is about 30-45 minutes each way, and the best place to put the boat to start is on the backside of Cookie Jar.

Good luck!

Ropes trail to the river
Could you explain this one further? Is this the trail that fisherman use on the south side of the bridge? I'm interested in the directions/starting location, etc. Thanks!
