Great trail for the whole family. Views are wonderful.

Have driven this road several times. Always a pleasure to drive.

See many volcanoes from the top! Don't miss this one! Worth the time to stop!!!

Beautiful! I love the view.
Very hot in summer time. I was there twice. During the sunny and during the rain.

How majestic!

nice place to visit, watch out for snakes in the bottom near the rocks...

The falls trail was good (68) but an attempt to hike the connecting trails left me frustrated. They are not well marked and overgrown. The small hiker plates that are on the trees are so far apart and hard to see. I found myself getting lost off the trail. Not recommended for someone new to that terrain. Stay to the falls trail

I didn't know what to expect at White Sands and was absolutely floored. This is the purest sand (gypsum, actually) you'll ever see that sparkles like the remnants of a glitter snowstorm. I didn't complete the entire trek (it was hotter than HOT and walking uphill in sand is no easy feat), but still felt satisfied. Rent a sled -- definitely get the wax too -- and you'll feel like it's Christmas in July.
