  • Really nice hiking trails from visitor center with great views and far fewer visitors than the nearby big national parks. Definitely worth a stop. Very helpful staff in visitor center.

  • Good memories of a place I took my two sons in 2003. Back then I drove them up the riverbed in my 4 wheel drive. Now in 2022 the riverbed has dropped considerably. With new terrain the canyon is a bit deeper & can only be seen by foot. The hike is an adventure as you turn each corner to find a new view of the canyon walls.
  • Rolled in before sundown. Set up the ol tent and slept peacefully. Outhouse wasn't too shabby. Hiked around and there are some great views. Good place to camp for free.
