I already reviewed this but Trip Advisor wants me to do it again. It is magnificent. Canyon walls not done justice by photographs. The river flows year round, and if you are tired of the Colorado front range brown, go inside these luscious rocks that...More

This park is great for hiking and picnicking. We arrived late so only had time to see the wheelchair accessible Whale Tail. The snow on the trees was gorgeous to look at.

Came here on Black Friday instead of shopping. Decided to hike solo for once. I usually have two kids that I drag along with me. I love this state park. Watching the rock climber to seeing the continental divide. Such a great history here

Followed the trail to rattlesnake gulch and continental view point. Great views of snow capped mountains. Passed Craig's hotel. Trail was busy even though early season. Good parking. Clean toilets.

excellent hiking, close to nature, nearby the city, but feels a world away. It was fun to watch the rock climbers! You can take a picnic and enjoy the bubbling stream. Stay for an hour or all day!

The canyon was huge and there were many people involved in rock climbing activities. They looked like small ants in front of the canyon. There are many trails around the canyon and a steady stream of water goes through out the canyon. It is Nature...More

We did not have a lot of time, but in a couple of hours we had it was a nice walk with spectacular views. The trails are accessible for the young kids my friends took with them.

I did see people walking their dogs on the trails across from where I hiked. So I'd say areas are good.
