We took an 8 day trek to Western National parks in August. After about 1 hour of driving into the National Park entrance from the main road, we arrived early morning. The park is easily walkable, fairly priced (my father had a senior citizen National Park annual pass which is a great deal), and epic. There is a post office, a nice-sized store for postcards and t-shirts, and a small cafe for sandwiches. We parked near a picnic bench and had lunch very close to the edge in a wooded area. A note: I am a little afraid of heights (old silly fear that I will jump even though I don't want to die), and until you get to Angel Point there are no railings and some narrow passages with canyon on each side...not for the faint of heart and I had to talk to myself to be OK and not be a wimp with my kids.
