Beautiful, absolutely stunning hike. Many trees down and crevices to walk in and around so it is not for someone who wants a light, breezy walk. Not suitable for dogs either, so I am glad we opted not to bring them when we came out....More

This hike is only two miles but it's very nice and good. However, it's kinda easy to get lost - the trail is not very well "marked out" so it's not always easy to choose the right way to walk.

I think the only great spot is the double arch, which is quite beautiful, besides, didn't see any very special rock formation, the water falls that we see is very very tiny, just a very thin stream of water line, didn't see any great scenery,...More

A wonderful place to hike, wade and have a wonderful outdoor experience. Nicely taken care of but on the path you feel you are in an ancient place.

We went on a beautiful day and really enjoyed the rock formations and the trails. Its a nice, long, 2.2 mile hike that is very enjoyable.

A friend of mine once said: this is the longest 2 miles you will ever hike. And, it is because you end up climbing up and around fantastic geological gems. This is a truly unique area and hike. Well worth it!

Hi! There are a few rocks to climb over, but nothing unusual and I saw a number of people with babies in carriers. My only suggestion is to go after it's been relatively dry -- we went the day after a pretty hard rain and... More
