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!

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
