It is a short hike from the parking lot below. It is a rocky hike that I have to carry my 2 year old most of the hike. I wish people will not throw their trash on the trail. We saw broken glasses, empty water...More

I dropped in to see this site before the botanical garden opened and just before the sun rose. Parking is very close and it’s just a short, moderate climb to the place you want to be. There are actually two holes - one you walk...More

It is an easy but steep hike to the top. The view from the top is great, including a nice view of the zoo.

What an amazing spot! Easily hiked trail to… a hole in a rock! We parked in one of the first parking lots and hiked in, maybe a quarter mile. From the parking lots the trail leads to the back of the mountain and easily leads...More

I have never seen a rock like that, and it is interesting to see. While it does not seem to be very high, it is impossible to climb to the hole from the front of the rock. But there is a easy path to go...More

It is a neighborhood secret and we learn that from our stay in La Quinta last year and when visiting this year, we paid another visit. Free parking and free admission. A wonderful climb up there to look down. The restrooms are quite clean. Good...More

The hole looks impressive from the parking lot. The best part is the path around the rock is a gradual incline to the back where you can then walk through the hole and enjoy the view. Don't forget to look up when you get to...More

Hi, this is a easy walk from the zoo to the hole in the rock. From there to the botanical garden it is recommended to take the short bus ride as taxi might be difficult that outside town. If you walk it will be 20 minutes.
