  • Moderate but short trail up to the rock. The park it’s in is very pretty and worth going to if you have time.

  • Super fun short activity. You can actually combine this with going to the zoo. We parked in the zoo parking lot and then walked over to the trail entrance. The whole activity takes maybe 30 to 60...

  • Beautiful in the morning when the sun comes up, and generally a nice place to take a breath of fresh air and to just get away… until all the tourist pile in there but just time your visit properly. Little to no trash on the ground, pretty nice place. It’s also a good area to test your beginner level rock climbing skills with or without safety. :)
  • This is a clean little hike less than 1/8 of a mile. The areas are tidy and offer secluded little nooks and crannies - the hole in the rock is so fun to see and a perfect location for watching the sunset, as is evidenced by the 100 or so people who come here to watch it from around the area. Scrambling up higher is possible but bring appropriate shoes. People slip and you can seriously injure yourself if you're not cautious. Pack it in & pack it out folks. There's not a lot of trash here but do your part to keep it clean and tidy for others.
