This is a beautiful view and round trip can easily be done in 45 minutes once in parking lot. 3/4 mile hike is all and we spent 15 minutes looking at the view but more time could be spent if you wanted. Short drive outside...More

It’s a short walk from the parking area and worth every minute you spend there. The only negative is that the Park Service is doing construction and putting buildings in an area that was virgin. A little sad to see.

Visit at the right time of day, and the overlook is stunning. Hundreds or maybe thousands of instagram photos prove that. Social Media has fueled the popularity of this attraction, making the overlook overcrowded and dangerous. People trying to get that perfect shot taking crazy...More

This is an easy hike, but can be warm. There are railings when you get to the edge. Definitely a must see!

This is a beautiful view. It is not what I would call an easy walk - mostly sand and small gravel. I would suggest taking water with you. It is mostly downhill on the way there and uphill on the way back. We went on...More

Arrive early because this is a super popular spot. Parking an become a challenge. A winding rocky open desert like trail leads to the overlook. Lots of photo and selfie takers and those who wander on rocks off trail. Disappointed to see some litter and...More

This trail is frequently described as short but difficult, however, it was short and easy. Tons of crowds by the guard rail, but if you walk 3 minutes to the right or left you can have views to yourself. Heard that this will be paid...More

By the nature of the terrain, I would say mid afternoon would be the best if you want no shadows. What I wanted to do, but was unable, was to show up as the sun was going down and shoot long exposures until after dark. By... More
