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

This is a relatively easy hike, but I give it five stars for it's views. The mesas span for miles, and it's well worth the stop if you're planning on hiking other trails in the area (Roman Nose State Park, for instance).

Decent compact area of mesas, but relatively speaking there's not a lot to see here. View from the top can oversee the area for miles, but it's all views of flat farmland and oil fields. Still, if passing through the area, I'd recommend a quick stop.

Did this hike right after a rain in late July. The weather was great and views were amazing. Some parts of the climb have wood planks that were a little slick from being wet. It is well worth the climb.
