Easy hike, although it can be pretty sweaty in the summer-- sunscreen and water are a must. Tons of petrified wood, and the best place to get up close and personal with it in the wild. Don't even think about taking any of it, though... imagine if everyone that visited took a chunk! There'd be none left!
