The park itself isn't too bad if you're wanting to camp or swim, but as far as hiking goes my wife and I didn't enjoy this trail too much. (sidenote: $12 per adult to enter the park for the day, our 2 yr old got in for free)

The first half of the trail was well marked, quiet, and beautiful. However, we ended up in a random camp ground with no direction and the trail sort of just ended with no indication of where to go. Navigating around swimmers, tents, trash, and vehicles wasn't what we were expecting.

It's probably our own fault for not doing the proper research and going at the wrong time of the year (Saturday afternoon June 24th), but the abundance of people, loud music, and trash ruined the experience. We may try this hike again during the winter when it's less crowded as another review suggests.

A bit of a sour taste on this one considering we drove an hour 45 from Ft worth and paid to get in, won't write it off just yet as the scenery is beautiful and there looked like some really cool places that could be more accessible if it wasn't so crowded. We'll give it another shot in the winter, crossing my fingers for a better experience next time around.

The castle-like ruins are very cool, as are the little caves, but I think the coolest part is driving to the park. Within minutes of getting off the interstate, it feels like you're in a completely different area.

This is a great stop on the road from Dallas to OKC. Lovely spring hike with very few people around. I wouldn't want to be there when summer hits and all the crowds descend, however. There is a park entrance fee - we paid $3 each for 55 & up, but that doubles on May 1. We hiked to the falls, which are close to the trailhead. The. Hiked up a wooded trail. The coreopsis were in bloom - incredibly gorgeous! We stuck out feet in the cold water - so refreshing.

Low level rock climbing, it is a great place for beginners with no need for gear. Don't just stick to the easy path, this is a labyrinth of rocky trails that are fun to explore with a beautiful waterfall as its prize.

Beautiful....got there late in the evening so was only able to walk down to the falls from the entrance, because we were to afraid to drive across the bridge with the water going over the top. We will definitely plan another trip up. The Zip line at the top is pretty cool though too.

Poorly marked trail makes it challenging to navigate with kids...making it not so kid friendly...dangerous trail for small kids...parents of little ones would do better taking them to red rock or roman nose...
