rock climbing
10 days ago

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.

good trail for moderately skilled off roaders.

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.

I brought my stock 2000 Toyota 4Runner 4x4 here for my first time EVER driving off road! There are several trails to choose from here, usually with an easy route and a hard route to get to the same destination, which was perfect for me. After getting a hang of things I attempted one steep difficult descent which was nerve-racking but a ton of fun! My rig handled it beautifully in 4Lo with road tires aired down a bit. Beautiful scenic views (we stopped for a picnic lunch at the summit), and a great destination for beginners and advanced drivers alike!

I parked at the Interpretive Center and followed the PCT along the Geology trail. Beyond the far picnic area, the trail follow a ridge road with great views back towards the Famous Rocks. At the end of the ridge road, the trail dives in and out of a canyon following the Horse/Foot trail; this is the most difficult part of the trail. I chose to back track along the ridge road and took an easier trail back towards the Famous Rocks. That trail goes behind the Famous Rocks and eventually connects with the history trail back to the Interpretive Center. About a 3 mile easy loop.
