“Great 2 mile hike”
Reviewed December 30, 2012

Great hiking trail that is under an hour so you can get on your way to see other parts of the park. Plenty of large rock formations to look at. Very easy hike that only has a couple very small gradual inclines.

“Great Picnic Grounds and View”
Reviewed April 7, 2012

Stopped here for lunch since there was a big sign saying it was a picnic area from Park Blvd. I did not expect it to be as awesome as it was. There were picnic tables scattered around and the parking lot was full. I was able to get my own table and then shared it with some other people who were looking for a place to have their lunch. The restrooms were clean. There were trails going everywhere through all the huge rocks. The view was incredible. A nice spot to take a break!

“Stop and explore, you'll like it!!”
Reviewed February 29, 2012

We drove by and decided to explore. The trail is short, and the scenery is incedible.

All in all, the entire park is incredible.

Well worth a stop if you drive in from the North entrance.

“Do an out and back on the western leg”
Reviewed December 6, 2011

This is a very scenic area of the scale of Hidden Valley with fewer people. Instead of the loop, my suggestion is to take the trail that goes off to the west (not north) from the parking area, go out 1+ miles, when the big rocks peter out, turn around and hike back the same way. This is a climber area too, so you might see that activity going on too. The side trail out to face rock is cool too - no question that's a face in profile! The dirt road (.5 miles) to the parking lot is really easy.
