I took my NYT and a cup of coffee and enjoyed the best sunset ever. Be careful on your way up and follow the trails/chains. Easy to fall but very enjoyable.

Nice rock formations - hard to imagine people climbing them safely. The guided hike to the pictographs and petroglyphs was interesting - lots of history. Jorge was very passionate and knowledgeable , but for us the walk was too long at 3 hours. 2 hours...More

People interested in bouldering do not need an introduction to this world class bouldering site. The rangers offer guided hikes at varying levels of difficulty. Most of the park is off limits except on guided hikes, but the guided hikes won't feel limiting to most...More
