Stopped at the visitor center to find a map and got directed to the pinnacle viewing area. Wow was it nice but a bit cloudy for photos. The Rock was cool.

What a wonderful park - incredible panoramic views, trails to walk, remnants of the historical past and educational videos (visitor station). The scenery and natural beauty are impressive. You will love it.... Highly Recommend.

This is not a large park, but is worth planning ahead before visiting. You will need to book ahead for the cave tours, and will need to know the schedule ahead of time. Bring plenty of water and good shoes. The trails are nice but...More
