“nice little park - beautiful rock formations”
Reviewed March 7, 2013

We were there in February, so it was deserted. But we'd like to come back when it's warmer. The stream flows through a narrow canyon. Rock walls soar overhead. There are several picnic tables, grills and a bathroom. There were even some swings for the kids. Nice place for a picnic.

“Not far off the highway, a neat geomorphic feature”
Reviewed August 31, 2012

Go there and take a picture that makes it look like you are holding up the rock!

There are no ammenities around, so be prepared with some water and snacks if you plan to stick around. There is a campsite a few km away but I did not check it out.

“Pretty Amazing!”
Reviewed August 19, 2012

You have to at least see this once. We took our kids and they were pretty shocked at how the rock is just balancing way up high on just a little tiny rock. The drive out is nice and it's always fun checking out all of the rock formations on the way there.
