Nice place to see for a couple hours - not a lot of other things in the area so I would not make a special trip just for this. There is a parking fee. A good place to take a stroll and take in the vistas should you find yourself nearby.
Beautiful Adventure - We stopped here as part of Georgia's Canyon Climber's Club destinations. Having been in Bryce Canyon, along the rim of the Grand Canyon, and deep into Zion, this is the south's own version of desert landscape. The history of this area is a great learning tool for future farmers and gardeners. The beauty will leave your camera clicking. We wish that we had gone in the fall or spring when it wasn't so hot and humid. Unfortunately, this trip was a little rushed. Come when you can stay awhile.
So cool!!! We took the time to chat with the incredibly sweet and helpful Ranger in the gift shop/museum and she directed us to the best routes to maximize our time we had. The 2.5 mike loop is not very difficult, and offers some really pretty views. We would go back again! Visited in late July and stayed at Florence Marina State Park.
A couple little parks close to the entrance with some great look outs of the canyon. The best views are on fairly substantial hikes. But can also be a quick stop for kids to enjoy an easy look out and park to get some energy out.
Well worth the trip!! Went in March while our college was on spring break. It was mostly overcast during the first part of our hike which was the descent. The sun decided to come out while we were exploring the various canyon floors though. While it wasn't scorching hot, it did get humid which made the hike up out of the canyon seem hotter than it really was. I strongly recommend taking a frog togg chilly pad or an equivalent sports towel. Great views from both rim and floor! I was able to get some good shots with my new camera.
Fun little place! The map was confusing to read and turned a 7 mile hike into a 12 mile hike due to confusion, but all in all, a fun time had with some friends and a new place explored. The clay was amazing. There were so many different colors I didn't even know existed. Dig around and play. You're going to get dirty! Don't forget to throw away your trash!
Beautiful. Its the most amazing thing I have every seen. You can hike down to the bottom where there are different paths that you can take to look at the different areas.
