    I have wanted to visit this place for about three years. If you are thinking about going, make sure you’re prepared!

    I’ll reiterate what others have said. First, it is in the middle of nowhere, there are no amenities of any kind there or anywhere remotely close. No restroom, no water, you get the picture. Second, there is no actual set trail and you can very easily get lost if you aren’t properly prepared with a downloaded map (no cell service) and GPS. Preferably you should also bring a backup battery or solar charger.

    The reason for 3 stars: The first mile (really two in my opinion) have little wow factor. I hiked 8 miles total (in and back) and only the last couple miles in were really interesting. I am certainly no geologist but it seems like they could have put the parking at least a half mile further in with little impact. Regardless, it’s a very interesting and fun place. Never saw the “wings” but definitely saw lots of other cool and weird things.

    Just be sure to practice Leave No Trace (and if you don’t know what that is, learn!) while there. I was impressed that I only saw 1 bit of human trash, left over from someone who apparently brought something to “wipe” with but didn’t bother to bring a bag to pack it back out. Lame.
