    Scenic drive was well worth the money. Beautiful rock formations, great photo ops. Look at those clouds! Great for families to park and take pictures, but it can get cold and windy in December!

    Goog place for hiking and mountains climbing, but you gotta go from early morning to spend the whole day there walking. If you have 4*4 car it will be better 👍

    Approximately half an hour drive from the Strip. Stunning views driving on the one way loop with many places to stop and get out to hike or enjoy the scenery. The geological formations are awesome.

    Stunning. Great introductory outdoor museum & lots of great stop off points for photo taking. It gets busy at weekends when sky is clear or interesting. Well worth the short trip to visit!

    Beautiful park the visitor center is worth stopping and checking out.

    Don Diamant · October 20, 2014
  • Erika L.

    Go into the visiting center to see the taxidermy, and cave paintings. Plus: do the scenic drive before 9 AM.Don't do anything dumb like jump on the edge of a cliff just for a cool photo.

    If you’re an outdoor enthusiast, this is a must see! Bring the kids for a family adventure - BUT don’t let the sun hinder your views. Wear your sunglasses to protect your eyes from the harmful UV.
