It is a nice ride out there and the area is very scenic. The road is slow paced for bicyclists and traffic. The park is nice and has a nice visitor center. The mountains are quite colorful.

We have visited & hiked the area in autumn months. We were lucky on our last visit in July that it was a cooler, overcast day. It is popular for beginning & experienced rock climbers as well. The visitor center is absolutely worth it even if you choose not to get out & explore the Canyon in the heat.

The red rock cliffs are the most spectacular feature of this conservation area. If you enjoy hiking, this park will not disappoint. There are trails for all levels of enthusiasts. There... More

We hiked one day and got acquainted. Great trails and visits. A wonderful piece of preserved nature. We got up early, drove out to the parking lot near the entrance and parked our car facing the read rock (west). That meant the sun came up behind us, with the sunlit line starting at the top of the red rock and... More

This was recommended by one of the locals, and I'm glad we listened. We went at around 4 PM and it was well worth the $7 park fees. The scenic rest stops accommodated people of all ages. Trails were marked to show the ability level for hikers. If you like nature then this is your place!

You will not be disappointed with this place. A $7 entrance fee per car (no passenger limit) is well worth the price. The welcome center has an excellent hands on place for kids and adults to learn about the canyon, how it was created, what lives there and how the place is cared for. There are many types of hiking... More

Beautiful park, been twice but a lot of hiking trails to explore with varied features at each. Did the Icebox Canyon hike this past time but was not cooler in the canyon as they claimed. Pretty hike and fun rock scramble, but too hot (102 degrees) to reach the end and make sure you bring a LOT of water, as... More

My mum, sister and I went to Las Vegas in the summer of 2010, and then we had booked a helicopter tour that would take us out to Grand Canyon on an one hour tour. It was one of THE most spectacular things I have EVER done! Our pilot was really good as well, and he had a lot to... More
