Like the trail guide says, there are so many interconnecting trails here that it is hard to describe them separately. I recommend just exploring the area rather than worrying about a destination, although you can make a loop around most of the park: Parking Lot Rock is a good place to start for that.

Amazing place to hike and climb. I go there at least once a year. So beautiful. Don't know why they say it is close to Albion, as it is located between Almo and Oakley. Not even close to Albion.

If you're looking for incredible scenery well off the beaten path, great place to hike etc. Drove up from salt lake for the day. went April 1st- the upper trails were still covered with deep snow drifts but the lower trails were all clear. Few rock climbers we stopped and watched, apparently busier during the warmer months. Passed cars and hikers on the roads, but plenty of trails you can put together: never saw another soul once we got out on the trails.

We didn't hike far to the climb. The climb was superb as a beginner. Camping is outstanding as is watching all of the climbers!
