Gorgeous state park with lots of trails and rock climbers. Took the Rattlesnake Gultch Loop to the scenic overlook of the Continental Divide. Lots of signage compared to other hikes we did.

I live by the Grand Canyon and I honestly think this park is 100 times prettier. It's so dry in Arizona and I loved all the water. It was hot when I went, I ended up just splashing some of the water on my face...More

Went for a 8.2 miles hike with a bunch of friends. It's an excellent trail with a river flowing alongside and the views from above are beautiful and amazing. Must go place for people who love to hike or do mountain climbing.

This is an excellently maintained, semi challenging trail, that is well worth the $8.00 parking fee. The entrance person suggested I park at the closest parking lot and walk the extra .5 mile to the trailhead so that I could see the canyon bottom and...More

This park is great for hiking and picnicking. We arrived late so only had time to see the wheelchair accessible Whale Tail. The snow on the trees was gorgeous to look at.

Came here on Black Friday instead of shopping. Decided to hike solo for once. I usually have two kids that I drag along with me. I love this state park. Watching the rock climber to seeing the continental divide. Such a great history here

I did see people walking their dogs on the trails across from where I hiked. So I'd say areas are good.
