The parking lot to the park has many path options and a great map. We took a multi use trail up to a fantastic viewpoint with stunning views of the lake. Lots of elevation change on the trail and some wildlife along the way as well!

If you're interested in climbing or exploring the area thoroughly, be sure to pick up a guidebook at any of the local sports shops.

Close to town, as in 5 minutes away. Good views of the lake. Could use some better signage on the trails.

Great hiking with very well marked trails. Wildflowers were just starting to some very tentative blooms. Some great spots for photo opportunities overlooking the lakes to the snow-capped peaks beyond. Plus a spotless outhouse with the most amazing view!!

This is a great place to spend a few hours or all day. Watch climbers rappel the cliffs and take in the lovely scenery. Some of the trails are not well marked and they can be rugged so water hiking boots and take water. There are lots of signs and trail maps so even if you get lost you will... More

There is a selection of difficulties to choose, from moderate to extreme. Hiking and rock climbing are what the park is all about. You need to be properly fitted with gear, water, etc

If you are into rock climbing you shouldn't miss this place! There are tons of routes, a lot of them bolted so the place is great for sport and trad climbing. My daughter spent a day here and she loved it.
