This place is breathtaking. Just the drive up through wilcox before getting to the visitor's center is absolutely stunning. I would recmmend it just for that drive. Its lovely in October/ November.

Such a unique, beautiful park! The rock formations look out of this world. We very much enjoyed both driving & hiking here. So many beautiful views. We hiked the sugarloaf mountain trail. The there is a high rise in elevation so be sure to have water & good shoes. Very much worth it for the view at the top! This park is definitely worth more publicity & should be more widely known. One of the top national parks we've seen!

Visited in February 2020, the drive in is long and questionable, but the reward at the end is definitely worth it. Would recommend to all those who are thinking about it to definitely take the time to visit. Great views, neat rock formations, and a beautiful drive inside the park.

Beautiful and picturesque. Well worth the side trip off the beaten path. Take some time to do some hikes.
