Amazing, breaking, and western feel. There is a parking area right next to the highway. The glimmer of the ground is mystical. There are stairs to climb up to get a nice view.

This park really exceeded my expectations in a big way. It’s like Utah meets Oklahoma. We took the climb, and the view was amazing. The gypsum shines even as you drive by. The only thing I can say bad is don’t use the restroom.

Area is well maintained. Tough clime if you have trouble with walking or balance. Beautiful views!! A neat side of the road stop with a few benches and tables on top to rest and relax.

very neat place to visit close to home. The glass like rocks you find on the trails are really cool. It was super hot the day we went, so I would like to go back on a cooler part of the year.
