Lots of chances to see wildlife. Get ready for lots of sun and danger of rattle snake.

one of a kind rock formations

This is a largely flat trail with spectacular views. You may see some big horn sheep. The bighorn sheep seem to be more active in the early afternoon. It is possible to extend the hike through some short out and back trails along the way.

Drove right though the park and took some great shots. However the park can be pretty redundant with rocks and prairie dogs

Lots of great views. Very populated area. Fun place to look for fossils. Very hot, and dry as you would expect.

My kids, age 5 and 9, my wife and I recently hiked off path and thoroughly loved looking for fossils. The rugged and sharps rocks deserve respect, but are perfect for hiking on. Beautiful landscape. Make sure to stop at the big visitors center (Rafiel?). There's lots to see.
