Gorgeous state park with lots of trails and rock climbers. Took the Rattlesnake Gultch Loop to the scenic overlook of the Continental Divide. Lots of signage compared to other hikes we did.

I live by the Grand Canyon and I honestly think this park is 100 times prettier. It's so dry in Arizona and I loved all the water. It was hot when I went, I ended up just splashing some of the water on my face...More

Went for a 8.2 miles hike with a bunch of friends. It's an excellent trail with a river flowing alongside and the views from above are beautiful and amazing. Must go place for people who love to hike or do mountain climbing.
