Easy enough walk from the parking lot, but it gives you an opportunity to get close to lots of petrified wood. Worth the stop as you are passing through the park.

Beautiful landscape, enjoyed that it was driving and well as some hiking sightseeing.

This trail features the classic petrified wood you see in most pictures. Very beautiful and awesome!

The parking is sufficient.

The views from the trail are stunning! Wind was an issue today but the spring temps were grand.

Much of the path is handicap accessible and all is suitable for strollers.

Wow!

We did the Park Ranger tour with Matt and Dorinda who were super special! They told us how the wood petrified and pointed out such amazing facts. I would recommend taking the parks feee tours. Easy to walk. What an amazing gorgeous hike!

Wonderful hike! So worth it, you must go around it to see the petroglyphs.

Very easy but interesting, just likt the giant losg trail near the visitor center.

Amazing. This was my “ahh” moment in the park.

The old (eroded road) meets the extremely old (petrified forest). The extremely old is winning. Very nice and easy hike, you will see a very large amount of petrified wood.

Short, easy off trail hike recommended by the National Park Service. You will pick up Martha's Butte fairly quickly in the hike, so it is not difficult to find. Suggest that you go around Martha's Butte for more petroglyphs and views. Note: No shade.

Terrific unmaintained trail to a butte with sweet petroglyphs.

The .75 mile Crystal Forest path is named for the beautiful amethyst and quartz crystals once found in the cracks of petrified logs. Several of the logs had clear embedded veins of quartz. In fact, concern over the removal of these crystals was what led to the protection of the Petrified Forest. It's hard not to wonder what this area looked like before the scavengers arrived. Worth a stop.

Great trail for all ages and a huge assortment of petrified wood! We really enjoyed it.

This is less of a trail and more of an easy walk. I didn't try it, but I bet this path could be easily navigated by people using walkers and canes. The petrified wood is quite interesting and plentiful in this area but the view of the overall landscape isn't that impressive. This is a nice first stop in the park.

Easy stroll on a paved trail, if you're more adventurous go out into the wilderness areas of the park. Much better.

Easy paved hike. Best examples of the trees that I saw in the south.

It was cold and rainy during my visit, but that did not effect how incredibly beautiful and bizarre the petrified wood was.

Pretty high traffic but worth it. Some of the better views of the petrified forests. Pretty easy walk seeing as its all paved as well.

This was an easy paved trail which laced around many downed trees that are now rock/quartz. Very amazing. Slightly windy, lots of photo opportunities. Cheap petrified wood just outside the National Park.

Nice pave walk around a heavy concentration of petrified wood. This is kid friendly. Not a bad one if your rushing through.
