Sixty-seven monolithic stone spires called sedimentary pipes accentuate multi-hued sandstone layers revealing 180 million years of geologic time. The color and beauty found here prompted a 1948 National Geographic Society expedition to name the area Kodachrome after the popular color film.

I loved this hike! there's not a lot of shade, so plan accordingly. We took the "slick rock" trail to finish the loop and it was beautiful. If you're physically able, you'll definitely want to consider going that way.
beautiful views all around.

Great for evening or morning photos, but midday summer time is too hot to enjoy. Very little shade.

Cool views. Similar to Garden of the Gods in CO.

Short hike, easy to the arch and then it gets slightly more difficult. There's not a lot of shade on the trail. Views were awesome! This is a neat state park.

Started to feel like more of the same view after a while. But it was a quick easy hike with kids.

Hiking to Shakespeare Arch is fun but the hiking afterward was my favorite part. All kids (ages 5-14) loved it. Beautiful views on the hike. Did it in the evening and enjoyed the shadows.

Interesting trail that goes into two different box canyons. If you want a medium length trail this is the one.

Trail climbs to a bench that have great views. The ranger told me this trail was her favorite. After hiking all of the trails in the park I agree.
