A very fun place to hike and camp, also provides designated repelling areas. Bring cloths that can get dirty for the red rocks do tend to stain cloths. There are multiple loop routes to choose from so you can hike it multiple times and choose different routes each time. The trail is very scenic and varied in its short distance. A number of short climbs and some areas that can be wet.

there is no trail map of ailable. Most of the trails are closed. The one the park endorses is absolutely full of sand spurs. Do not bring your dog, as they cannot walk a single step without getting one !!! it is apparent, as you step out of the parking lot. there should be signage here ....
had I not brought my dogs, could have been enjoyable walk. Really disappointed in this park, as it is full of people, and could be better maintained.

We really enjoyed this trail a year ago. If it opens up again, it's worth going. There was just one washed out swampy section in the middle, but we could get through it fine in a dry season. I heard an unfortunate rumor that the park may be closing all together though.
