Trail has nice views. We went after some heavy rains, but the mud was not too bad at the time. There was a lot of wind, as well.

I can imagine during the warmer months that this tail is occupied with many dirt bikers, as there are a great collection of jumps for them. It would be fun to come and see them perform.

Great views atop the rocks. The trails are not clearly marked in some areas, but it is fun to explore. We happened to go a few day after some heavy rain and it was crisp and clear.

Fun, easy trail with a few side trails if you want to get adventurous. Had no problem in my stock RAM 1500. Did the whole trail in 2wd. Great views of the surrounding mountains and very well marked. It rained a few days ago so there was plenty of mud to play in. Watch out for dirt bikes.

I took the PCT through the tunnel, and just a little beyond. There's really not much to see once you go through the tunnel. Best thing about this trail is the rock formations. I recommend doing this hike during the cooler months, as there is no shade except down in the canyons. Stunning scenery. Bring plenty of water, a hat, and sun block anytime of year.

rock climbing

My husband and i went here in October and the weather was perfect. The climbing is relatively easy but there are some optional more difficult parts that i let my husband try first to see if i was able to do it. Overall there are alot of easily accessible high up point to climb to that still give you the satisfaction of climbing. Very fun and i definitely enjoyed the geography trail by the parking lot.

Its the closest somewhat challenging trail to me and its regular visit for friends and I. I've done it so many times now I've lost count. I prefer going at night during the weekdays as there is less chance of running into crazy quads and dirt bikes. At the top it's a great lookout and a nice place to hang out.

Great easy hike around the park and lots of fun rock formations to mess around on. For those looking for a longer and harder hike, fallow the PCT trail south through the tunnel of darkness were it continues on through some serious mountains. just be careful not to go to far, PCT never ends!

Great place for a jog with a few uphills. Trail is 3.6 miles. When I walk the trail it takes about an hour and 10 minutes. Jogging the trail takes me under 40 minutes. Hopes this helps.
