short trail but really pretty views. the land below is so flat you can see for miles

I'm terrified of heights so for me this hike and the steep stairs were no fun at all.

I was very glad we decided to stop here on our way back from Alabaster Caverns. This was a great short hike with beautiful views.

Very easy hiking. A short treck to the top of the mesa and then you can just wander around. Beautiful views!! Super windy!! We were there during the week for a couple of hours wandering and taking pictures and we didn't see anyone else the entire time. Just a couple of rattle snakes and lots of birds.

I only wish the trail had been longer!

It was a cute little hike. Lots of good places to stop and journal

very cool area for different scenery. very very windy..

Amazing scenery! Breath taking beauty to take in and watch the hawks circle and coyotes howl.

The trails and stairs are a bit overgrown with grass, but the views are fantastic! Takes about an hour to explore everything in the park.

Easy hike, stair steps are a little sketchy, it's a shame they fence off the best part at the top, but it's worth the stop if you need a break on your road trip! Really good for a day trip if you don't live too far away, which means like myself you live in the middle of mostly flat lands and barren trees.

Such a change of scenery from our home are on southern Oklahoma! The top part of the stairway was a little tough for our 4 year old but he made it.. the hollow sounds at the top were too cool

This is a relatively easy hike, but I give it five stars for it's views. The mesas span for miles, and it's well worth the stop if you're planning on hiking other trails in the area (Roman Nose State Park, for instance).
