This is a cannot miss. It is perfect for spending a nice day walking in and around the park. You can do an easy stroll or a more vigorous hike. The formations are amazing as is the background.

GOG is one of my favorite place to hike all year round. It is just a beautiful, peaceful place. Note - you might have to pick up after other visitors as some can't seem to find the many trash receptacles on the trails.

Unlike any other place on earth! There's something for everyone here especially hikers and rock climbers. It's busy so please be quiet, pick up your trash and keep it better than you found it.

We just came from there with a toddler and a 7yr old. It was cold but not unbearably cold. The walk was not bad at all. I saw some people in jeeps on a tour. You may want to look into that.
