All 35 miles of this drive was amazing. Lots of stopping points, a little hiking, and overall just surrounded by stunning views. Well worth the few hours the whole visit to the park took.

Lots of scenic overlooks, about 30 miles long. Take your time and soak it all in. This is a drive you want to drive slow and just look around and stop frequently. Do the hike at the end!

The drive to get to this trail is quite lengthy. We felt like we'd never arrive. Thankfully there were lots of lookout points where we could see canyon vistas below. Parts of the road were snow covered on our way during early April. Once at...More
