One of the "Off the Beaten Path Hikes" in this park, it loosely follows an old park road built in the 1930s which is mostly eroded away. The hike goes through incredible amounts of petrified wood, large and small, and ends at what was/is Eagle Nest Rock. The top part of this unique feature fell in 1941.

We did the Park Ranger tour with Matt and Dorinda who were super special! They told us how the wood petrified and pointed out such amazing facts. I would recommend taking the parks feee tours. Easy to walk. What an amazing gorgeous hike!

We decided to make our own adventure and climbed down the bluff and explored the beautiful gems God has created!

The old (eroded road) meets the extremely old (petrified forest). The extremely old is winning. Very nice and easy hike, you will see a very large amount of petrified wood.
