The hike sure is terrific! I imagine the views at fall will be spectacular. Unfortunately we were there during summer, but the hike is still the same!

A great "rail to trail" flat hike alongside the creek is a pleasure. Limited access to the canyon makes for a strenuous hike but limits crowds. The creek is very nice and... More

Beautiful fall foliage. We were lucky to hit peak time. Be sure and check out the films in the visitor center.

We only had time in our trip to go to the main viewing centers, where you can get some beautiful vistas of the “Grand Canyon of the East” from the east rim. There were several viewing platforms, all within a very short distance of each other. The views were wonderful! I do not like heights, or being on an edge;... More

What a nice little park! We didn't have a lot of time & only had a short visit, but the deck & pathways were so convenient, we were still able to really enjoy the canyon. We had packed a picnic lunch & were delighted to see such a great facility for picnics. Clean bathrooms & gift shop were an added... More

We visited Leonard Harrison State Park first and then went to the other side of the canyon and looked at the view from the Colton Point State Park. The view is amazing! We were there on November 2 so all of the leaves were gone but it was still an amazing view! If you go this time of year -... More
