This is such an amazing place, and my kids loved it! All of us enjoyed playing music with the hammers we brought as well as the iron tools that are available for use at the rocks. We were able to drive the entire road, except for .5 miles in our minivan. We drove slow, and thankfully the roads were dry. Since the roads are dirt, it would be quite muddy and impassable in our vehicle if they were wet. It was a must to keep our all trails directions up. about .5 miles out, there is a dirt parking area. From there, the road has huge pot holes and large rocks throughout. We just hiked on up the mountain. Gorgeous views from the trail!
