  • The Conata Basin Overlook can be viewed by walking to the end of a straight boardwalk. The boardwalk is about 500 feet long. It is was worth a 10 minute stop.

  • We not only checked out the view, we then took the road and drove down through the interior. Such interesting scenery and so many different birds in the grasslands.

  • A very nice viewpoint along the scenic drive. Based on its location I would imagine this place being very good for sunset, although I chose to watch at Pinnacles (unsuccessfully due to clouds I might add). Either way, this one is worth stopping on the drive
  • It was absolutely breathtaking undescribable. I would suggest everybody in the United States at least once go there. It's worth the drive.
