Excellent hike with trails that are beautifully created and well maintained. Obviously an enormous amount of work went into creating the trails. This is a hike that shouldn't be missed - the views are spectacular.

Utterly transporting location. Made us 50-somethings feel like kids again. Great spot to sit over a sack lunch and really contemplate the phantasmagorical pinnacles and balanced rocks. Nice winding trail with some uphill, but any doubts as to the route is relieved by the fading...More

Heart of the Rocks loop requires you to hike about 7 miles to get to and is specular. The massive rock outcropings in this park are really something to view. Shorter Hikes are available in the park and you can drive to scenic outlooks areas...More
