After a morning of canyoneering, we asked our guide to suggest a good afternoon activity in the park that wasn't as crowded as the Emerald Pools. He suggested this one. This hike starts at the trailhead to the more ambitious Observation Point, but then splits...More

This was a great hike with totally beautiful views all around. It's dicey in some places so you have to be careful not to roll an ankle or hurt your knee. But it is worth the risk for sure. Great for a family just make...More
