Hiking in the park is limited to one long trail and several shorter ones. Castle trail is the longest at 5 miles one way. The terrain is very primitive. There really is no shade. You will need sturdy shoes (saw one girl walking in flip flops. Yikes), sunglasses and sun hat and water. You can fill your own bottle at the visitors center w/o charge. The formations are absolutely beautiful. If you can, enter by the Pinnacles entrance. The drive into the park from that direction is spectacular. You will pay to enter the park but it is good for several days. Fight the urge to stop at Wall Drug. Nothing more than a tourist trap.
