We parked in town and walked into the park. Saved a few bucks on entrance fee. It’s $3 to walk in. We found out later that we parked in an area reserved for pool visitors. Fortunately we didn’t get ticketed. We walked a somewhat steep...More

Nice scenes but lots of dust from cars. Narrow roads which makes it difficult to pass 2 cars. If there are cafes or restaurants it would be exciting but there are only wooden seats for picnics.

Beautiful canyon. Range of trails from very easy to much more strenuous. Lots of climbers doing the vertical walls--fun to watch but nice to not have to do that! A beautiful creek runs through it--water so clear and cold! Definitely worth your time!

This park has something for all levels of ability. Some experienced climbers come here to try their hand at the intense climbs. My family of moderate to low physical ability enjoyed hiking to see the falls and walk on Fowler trail. Part of Fowler is...More

Make the time to At least have a snack by the rushing water. You can walk Fowler trail, it’s more like a walk than a hike. A short walk will give you great views. Go all the way to the visitor center parking lot when you get... More

It is very much worth it! There is no strenuous hiking if you follow the Fowler Trail. Bring comfortable sneakers.
