Great park. Wear the right kind of shoes so u can enjoy the place better then I did in flip flops lol.. This place is beautiful and big! Bring the family for a picnic and bring a camera it is breathtaking!
Awesome place for a hike. Dogs are allowed. The ledges are fun to climb around on. Hiking can be easy if you stay up top but difficult if your going to climb the ledges.
