I visited this State Park and the Balmorhea Park the same day and the admission was good for both. I took the scenic drive to the top and could see the entire park.

We let our teenagers choose the locale for our spring break vacation, and we loved this park! Walked/hiked for 2 hours, and found some beautiful local agate rocks also.

Visiting in late February we enjoyed the bird blind photography and visits to the top of the mountain for night skies. One daylight visit to overlook rewarded with observing large group of aoudad sheep below. A great State Park!

June is the hottest month of the year in this area. Temperatures can easily reach 100 degrees and it is extremely dry. Dehydration is a major concern. People die in this area from dehydration while hiking every single year.

There is no where to swim at the park, but Balmorrhea State Park is about 33 miles away.
