Beautiful park! Entrance fee was $10. You can return in the next year with the permit. Trails are excellent. We stayed for the night show that began at 9 pm. It is about 45 minutes.

As expected, very crowded with tourists. Ask for the senior discount for entry if eligible (62). Visit in the am as the sun will be brightening the sculpture and behind you. An American must see.

I'm not sure, our tour started and ended up in Los Angeles. I'm sorry I can't provide you much help with your question.
