Have been coming here for years and still enjoy it. The trails are difficult and very rocky, but that's what I love about it. Great place for rock climbing & bouldering. Unfortunately, with many awesome places, it is usually very crowded. Parking can be difficult...More

Blonde " park ranger" tries her hardest to make sure you never return. Watch out she likes to show her athouratie! As said on South Park. AVOID! She will try to get you for picking up a few sticks to start a fire!

I would call the interpretative center before going. Spring can be a time of fluid change. They can tell what is blooming and if the snow has melted.

Yes. The trail right outside the visitor center should be okay for her. My Mom is 67 and did all the trails. Even a bit of rock climbing (bouldering) too!
