$5 fee, but it’s kind of a scouts honor scenario where there are multiple envelopes and you put the money in the envelope and then down a small slot near where you get the envelopes. Super easy trail, especially if you only walk the juniper loop. When you finish the trail there are multiple “caves” off to the side where you can go through the narrow sides.

Easy trail. We did the 4 mile loop, miller point overlook and the crystal caves in about 2 hours. The park is small but very scenic.

The campground was very well kept, and my 10 year old absolutely loved the caves area. We will definitely be going back.

A very nice loop trail through the valley along many interesting and unique geological formations. Easy well marked trail on level ground.

Fun, easy, Unique, amazing, breath-taking place. So much fun exploring the slot caves, if you can spend the night at the campground and enjoy the night sky.

This is a really fun and easy trail that kids will LOVE. If you start at the northern picnic area you get to descend the steel staircase into the canyon and then meander through the alien landscape. Chances are in this remote location you will have the area mostly to yourself. Once you get to the southern end of the trail, you can explore the small slot canyons and feel like you are on a Star Wars planet! Highly recommended.

I really liked this trail. Cathedral Gorge is a really unique place and this loop trail is the best way to see it. Took me a little bit less than 2 hours to hike it and I stopped frequently to take photos. It’s a very easy hike and the views are worth it. Wear sunblock if it’s warm out because there is no shade whatsoever on this trail. Also, most of the hike is in the washes that run through the gorge so wear shoes you won’t mind getting really muddy. The scenery is not on a huge scale, but it’s kind of refreshing to be able to do something on a smaller scale.

Stopped here to spend the evening. We started the hike in late afternoon. Very easy and quite unique terrain. Very easy walk, benches in good spots. A must see park. Seen this on All Trails web site. Really nice.

The Cathedral Gorge Trail on AllTrails is actually a combination of two trails in the park. The Miller Point Trail is a one mile out and back trail that climbs up to Miller Point. A covered seating area is located at the top as is a parking area with direct access from Hwy 93. The second trail, Juniper Draw Loop, branches off to the left of the Miller Point Trail making it easy to begin the loop after completing the Miller Point Trail. The Juniper Draw Loop Trail is a three mile loop. The two trails together are about 4 miles of easy hiking.
