Our family (4 kids ranging in age from 5-11) loved it here. Gorgeous scenery and great exploring and hiking. We hiked down the left side and the trails were great. Absolutely beautiful area and we loved the history of this place.

I would return to this location. I must admit that I would prefer to be up high; situated over the canyon, versus down inside. You are all by yourself up there, so don't expect any amenities (toilets, snack bars, etc).

We went for the view...vs. going for a hike...but taking the time to hike would have been awesome. Regardless...the view was worth the trip. Absolutely beautiful!

What can I say.......it was so breathtaking beautiful! I didn't bring any hiking shoes so next time I go, I will bring some good hiking shoes. Pictures just don't do the canyon any justice!

If hiking, be sure to take plenty of water & snacks. I don't remember restroom facilities/out house. Great view though.

Beautiful. Amazing to view. Even though this goes on for what feels like forever, I still recommend people go to Writing-On-Stone and see those hoodoos!

I used to come here when I was a kid and I still love it. It's quite the hike and bring lots of water and a hat as it gets quite hot down there. Sometimes you'll come across a snake, so be aware, but nothing to worry about (and I hate snakes ... a lot!). It's a tricky slope to... More

These hills go on and on. There is a trail for those who are adventurous. The colours of the different rocks is amazing.

We went there just before sunset. Beautiful scenery and lots of prairie dogs to see. Sadly, we did not have time for a hike, but it sure is a beautiful place for a hike.
