Found this first with a trolley ride and again with a Jeep Tour. Plenty to see and do. All levels of trails. Outstanding scenery. Great spot for sunset too.

A lovely trail that takes you through the cover of tree before reaching the end and ascending to a lookout point. It was worth walking around just a bit further to see the view back down the canyon.Take plenty of water and not too much...More

If you go there during a national holiday, there is no fee to park. The same is true for any national park. However, the airport mesa parking fee will still be $3.00 no matter what day you go.
