Arrived and luckily we had $14 cash to put in box. Walked most of the trail and although a beautiful natural setting, there are plenty of similar places to visit with no cost attached. More hype than value.

Dear Richard, I'm sorry that you were disappointed. Did you get to the Cottonwood Stone Circle or one of the Native American Medicine Wheels? Kind regards, Chuck
