This is a great hidden gem! My parents, kids, and I came here for a half-day adventure. We enjoyed the beautiful views, and walked several of the easier trails. We weren't sure what to expect from a state park nestled between the national parks, but...More

Easy to get to and we'll worth the drive. The view is amazing. The history of the place is interesting and some of the old fence can be seen on the way to the lookout.

This is a very pretty overlook of the Colorado river. The river is not directly underneath so you have to look "away" to see it. Beautiful view but Horseshoe Bend is prettier and more dramatic. Nice view and worth the visit.

Good place to view a large canyon. Although I visited on a cloudy day, the view and color was unusual enough to make it interesting.
