OK, so the rocks formations don't soar as high and there is no river and very little greenery in this park as compared to Zion. BUT, it's also not crowded and unbelievably beautiful. We drove through the park (only about 20 miles) and then turned...More

This is a great park to hike and even drive through. The scenery is gorgeous. There are these cute lizards, petrified sand dunes and black lava. This time of year the weather was great ... sunny, not to hot, wear layers. The restrooms are spotless....More

Excellent and so beautiful with a variety of trails to hike. You can't do it all in one day! We traveled with 5 teenagers, ranging from 12 to 18, and 3 adults. They loved it better than Zion because they were able to climb over...More

We spent the better part of a day hiking on the various trails in the park, and we were never bored. There are lots of trails, they're well marked, and they're not too challenging. There were a fair number of people in the park, and...More
