Need to get some hill work completed in Oklahoma? This is your spot. Train like Camille Herron and be great!

We did this hike from the end of the gravel road. We hiked approximately 1.5 miles in to the narrows and then returned. Absolutely fantastic rock formations. The kids loved it. Plenty of room for them to run and play. Only moderately trafficked.

Very pretty!

This is one of my favorite places on earth. I go to SD every year and never miss the waterfalls in Spearfish canyon.

It was a lovely drive with lots of viewpoints. I did every other viewpoint driving toward Rainbow Point and then the rest driving back so I wouldn’t be stopping at every single one and so I had something to do on the way back.

Great drive

Decided not to hike our second day. We took this drive and had a blast. Enjoyed the views, stopped to take pictures. The lake at Eagle’s Nest State Park is beautiful! Make sure you stop. Before we made the complete loop, we turned off on Lower Arroyo Hondo to go to Black Rock Hot Springs. Highly recommend it.

This is much shorter if you drive down the unpaved road. I drive a Prius so low clearance vehicles can make it down the road. Parking is a bit difficult so everyone parked along the road. The narrows aren’t that narrow at all but it’s amazing nonetheless.

Closed at Maple Dell due to forest fires.

Who doesn’t love MCNP?!? Just go, enjoy, take the kids! Depending on your tour as to the length you’ll be in the cave. Do them all it’s worth it! Just remember to buy your tickets way in advance of your planned visit to ensure you’ll have a spot you want!

First time experience coming here and hiking. Love it! Can’t wait to see what’s up ahead.

I went at the beginning of October. There was little traffic and the weather was very cooperative. Lots of amazing views!

Absolutely beautiful drive with stunning views, especially at the top. I drove with my windows down and was disappointed in the smell from all the car fumes.Alot of traffic so go during the week and early.

Beautiful! It was snowing lightly when we got there but the view was breathtaking! We only went a couple miles and headed back due to the pavement ending, and the ground was super wet. If you’re a photographer, this place is a goldmine.

The wait time to the shuttle was around 20mins and its awesome, the shuttle stops and many places and you can start your hikes, if you dont have time and just wanna see few viewing points this shuttle is the best way.

Beautiful drive. Great introduction to The Snowy Range. Many hiking trails and camping areas along the way. Was also able to view some wildlife-horses, antelope, buffalo, etc.

Beautiful trail and awesome weather

Great route for autumn foliage lovers. Also great to take advantage of when it’s raining or you’re too sore to hike from all the activities in the area. Sometimes when the weather isn’t conducive to hiking, I come from hours away just to enjoy the scenic drive.

Nice drive especially in October when aspens are turning color. We also did this route in late May. Washboards are bad at the start but then thin out and are almost non-existent as you travel on. Both times we turned off onto Forest Rd #154 and went out to Bicknell. Posey Lake is a nice stop for lunch.
