There was heavy snow.. but enjoyable.

Aside from the snow and having two kids we enjoyed it very much. Great vistas and the snow did add another dimension.

We were there in February so we drove our car along this road to see the most spectacular views. It's open until March 1 for car travel. There are no words to describe the views.

Lookout points are extended so you get a great view. The negative is no parking for your car so you have to take the suttle

Easy walk perfectly for kids and older people. Take half a day to enjoy the spectacular view, take time to rest and plan it that you are there for the sunset, this is awesome whenthe Canyon gets red colored.

The Hermit trail is a great way to see the park in the off season since you can drive your personal car there until March 1st. We saw elk every day and we saw the idiots approaching within five feet of the elk. I never saw a park ranger on any of our trips.

Traveling off season we were able to drive ourselves down the Hermit Trail, something you can not do most of the year. With many opportunities to pull off and park, the many views and perspectives of the canyon were seemingly endless. at the end is the Hermits rest which offers limited facilities and a gift shop, oh of course, more...

This location was kind of hard to find at first. The signs to get there were confusing. We finally asked someone. Also the traffic near the hotels and train station was bad. Along the way traffic also was stopping for the Elk Herd grazing just on either side of the road. Although the Park prohibits anyone to approach the animals,... More

The pass will allow you access to areas of the park not typically available to private vehicles. So worth it. Those with limited mobility can see almost everything right from the car.

This hike to us 5 hours round trip and we only saw 4 other hikers. The beginning of the trail is rough. We were told it was rock scrambling, but that doesn't begin to describe it. It was extremely difficult to hike down the "cobblestone" path. For once, hiking up and out was easier. The destination (Dripping Springs) was nothing... More
