This was a wonderful way to pass the day! We went on a day when the temperature was approaching 100 degrees, so whatever trekking we did was minimal. However, we made the most of the scenic routes and view points while driving. Beautiful views in every way.
Unimaginably beautiful views, wonderful walks, and colorful rock formations. The trails are a mixture of sand, dirt, and rock. One of the southwest's most distinctive experiences for me. Although it is kid-friendly, I'd keep the little ones on a short leash. Enjoy every second since the drive through it is just as picturesque as the hikes.
We made the decision to stop by on the way back to Vegas, and I'm so glad we did since it's a lovely park. The park's entrance cost was $15 per vehicle. We only completed a few of the trails because the weather was so hot and sunny, but I heartily recommend the White Domes Trail because it is short and takes you into a little slot canyon. The best time to go to the park is early in the day to beat the heat.
