Super weird nature with stunning views
Nov 2020
I love the idea that geologists are still scratching their heads about this one (not sure if that's actually true, but as far as I remember it is). There are theories about how this was created, but I'm not sure they've agreed to settle on one. The views from the top are amazing. I'm looking forward to taking the time to hike down and around it on our next visit.

Skip second viewpoint
Sep 2021
I loved the colors inside the dome. The best view is from viewpoint number one. You can easily skip the second.

A long, hard walk, but worth it
May 2021
Yet another great set of views in a park that has so many of them. I had to leave my wife behind for this one as I expected it would be too tough for her and boy, was I right. She has MS and this one wasn't easy for me. For her, no way. Too bad, but I took lots of pictures and videos so she can experience it vicariously.

Cool Adventure
Jul 2021
We loved this hike! Go the whole route, not just to the first stop. You'll miss some of the best parts if you don't continue. I would say it is moderate, but definetly worth it. The top is windy and exciting with good panoramic views. It was one of our favorite hikes.

Worth the hike up
Jun 2021 • Couples
It is a very unique formation with gray rock you don’t see elsewhere in the park - due to the “upheaval.” The hike up is pretty vertical but take your time as it is manageable.

Short Hike to some Amazing Views
Apr 2021
Just a 10 minute hike from the parking lot, but worth the effort. Path is uphill but has good steps built for access, most anyone mobile could do the hike. Certainly a different looking place with its blue-green soil in the bottom. Not a dome, it is more like a crater you can look down in to.

Moderately intense hike
Apr 2021 • Couples
The hike from the parking lot is mostly uphill to the first viewing point. The views are nice but not he best in the park. There is a second view point further down the trail.

Good hike but a "blah" result at the end
Jan 2021
It's a decent hike, but would honestly suggest that there are others that offer a better experience or view. This dome is unique, but a bit of a let down upon arrival - kind of a "is that it?" moment. It's not a tough hike, but if time is an issue - you might find another option.

Nice hike. Not the easiest, but not the hardest. Very lovely location with a unique story behind it.

Nice Hike, It is Uphill Going Up
Sep 2019
We did this hike in just 2 short hours. Because we weren't prepared to hike my husband hiked with our 4-year-old in a back harness (she was in a dress and Native shoes). She could have easily done with the hike with multiple stops. The beginning kind of starts out weird because the signs to say go straight but really move to the right. Other than that the hike was well marked up until you reach the dome.
