The part of the park we were at was extremely busy(there are two entrances to this park). It could have been because it was Labor Day weekend. The parking lot was full at times we were there and people were still looking for parking spots....More

This was a great afternoon trip with teenagers. Very interesting and lots of climbing, up very well marked paths and steps. Hand rails for safety and help up and down the stone steps. Pot holes were fascinating.

Yes. The trail right outside the visitor center should be okay for her. My Mom is 67 and did all the trails. Even a bit of rock climbing (bouldering) too!
