We arrived before 8 am and were able to get parking as the lot is small. Cool hike and able to see the "seven pools' on the way up and back.

We took our Jeep up...if you go, you must have a permit (free online) which is limited to 12 vehicles/day. Went up to the Devil's kitchen, views all around and not very crowded

This is a quiet trail. You have wonderful views of the rocks, exposure to the unique vegetation and fewer tourists.

My college buddies and I took a good long hike here. Took our time and had a great time. Bring water if you go. The climb is moderate but doable.

We were looking for a good 2-3 hour hike and this one was great! It has some variety but not overly challenging. Nice views and some interesting geographical formations including a big sink hole. Great way to spend half a day!

Glad I took my walking stick this was a good hike with my teenager. Go early in the morning for parking and nice temperatures.
