The three minute walk from the shuttle is well worth it. Water that has been weeping through the clay for thousands of years finally gets pushed out through the face of a cliff, falling like rain. You can walk through the water and see through the back side of water out into the valley.

I would highly recommend this especially to families with young children. The short hike up there was very manageable, and the view from the rock was amazing. It's as if you were seeing the scenery from behind a trickling water curtain. Good for contemplating life's many unanswered questions as well :-).

This was a nice walk up to an interesting formation. It is all paved and worth the few minutes it takes to get up there. Very slippery once you are there. Very quiet in the early evening just before dark. We are getting a bit older and are not hikers, but we negotiated it easily and it is nice if... More

It's a very short trail, a few minutes right where you start the trails to Hidden Canyon and Observation Point. You stand under an overhanging rock (like being in a shallow cave). There were some vines hanging down. It was raining, so water was dripping. If you can't hike or don't want to, it's something to see in the park.

Nice short stroll up to viewpoint of valley. Paved and with handrail at all times so good for all. Would recommend, but don't go out of your way to do it.

Nothing to be fearful of here. Nice short climb on a paved trail. Beautiful view of the valley floor.

Enjoyed this short walk up a track to walk behind a waterfall, nice & cool on a hot day you can get a bit wet.

It is paved all the way. Can be slippery after rain but it is steep for some, but great views at the end.

The kids were excited to see 1,000 year old water (that's how long it takes for the water to seep out of the rock). This was a simple short hike (uphill the way there). We saw the rock, felt the weeping water, and headed back. Not earth shattering.

We hiked the Weeping Rock Trail after doing the Hidden Canyon trail. After a short walk along a paved area (with some steep sections) you come to the Weeping Rock area. Essentially, you come to an overhang that is large enough to shade itself from the sun and water drips from the rim of the overhang. The water seems down... More
