Beautiful canyon and creek, Rock Climbing, Sheer cliffs, hiking and Mountain biking. This hike takes you up and down through this climbers paradise. Because this is a world famous climbing site and the weather is good year round, solitude is hit or miss. The amazing hike through the crooked river canyon is worth putting up with the crowds. The trail is mostly easy walking but gets quite strenuous as it climbs over the ridge. Stop occasionally and watch the climbers rise and fall on the solid rhyolite tuff. Many optional routes can lead you through this park, but one main trail exists throughout. Dont miss monkey face and other rock formations. After hiking this park, head over to the Cove Palisades and hike the Tam-A-Lau Loop.

They call this moderate but it is on the verge of being hard if you take the front side path up the stairs. If you head west along the base and climb the Rock from the switchbacks by Monkey Face Rock then it is easier. Once at the top give yourself time to explore. The entire area is beautiful and worth the effort.
