“If you love history...”

Beautiful park, very tidy, helpful guides. One of the trails was closed due to trail maintenence, but it will only improve the park when finished. Wear comfortable shoes-lots of stairs to climb!

“Make time to visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2013

This is a small but very nice location. It has a couple of short trails which are good for children. The visitor center is well done. But mostly it is a really beautiful canyon, well worth a visit. As others have noted, the rangers are very helpful and informative. Can't believe it took us so long to visit.

“Nice workout for the kids”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 23, 2013

This is so beautiful. I can't do the hike down into the canyon but my kids love this. So much history, so much to learn. Kids can become Jr. Park Rangers and recieve badges. This program is free for children.

“Beautiful canyon”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 18, 2013

It was beautiful and the rangers went out of their way to help folks. We were disappointed the main trail was closed for maintenance. It would have allowed us to go right up to the dwellings.
