It is a relatively easy trail to get up close and personal with the amazing formations in the area. The towering fins look amazing and all the formations in the rocks around you are fascinating. While there aren't arches to see as such, this walk...More

The views inside the canyon are amazing on this out and back trail. Our two 5 year olds and 7 year old loved all the rock formations.

We did the Park Avenue Trail twice at different times of the day and it felt remarkably different. Love this trail and it offers many opportunities for excellent photo shots!
