  • If you are in to climbing this is a unique place to enjoy that. If you are just into hiking and seeing some really awesome (and rare in North America) cave paintings, this is the place for you. It also has some cool geological aspects to it so if you are a rock nerd you can get some enjoyment out of it as well. Make sure you call ahead to check the schedule because they only allow so many people in the park at a time and you have to watch the intro video. I would also recommend going out to the road at night for stargazing. The park isn’t open at night but there is a pull off by a tree and a bench where you can enjoy the night sky.
  • Beautiful, captivating scenery, try to plan to go out there on a cloudy or overcast day. Plenty of wild life to see, beautiful unique birds, lizards, and we once even saw wild hogs out there. Beautiful mountains and plenty of interesting history in the area. Break walking trails, clean bathrooms, and absolutely beautiful mountain hiking trails as well.
