Very impressive rock formations. Must be able to walk over rough terrain. The children that were there really seemed to be having a good time although the parents had a tough time keeping them from climbing the rocks.

Very unique tourist stop in a sweet little town. Not exactly a hiking trail but more of a little walk through a series of very interesting and beautiful rock formations. Visitors must remain VERY aware of their surroundings as there are large cracks, spaces and...More

Great place to get a little exercise, fresh air and be awed by nature. The rock formations are fantastic. I would be leery of taking small or unruly children as there are some high cliffs with no fencing. The gift shop has plenty to look...More

Definitely worth the price of admission. The rock formations and picture opportunities are numerous. There are some neat piece of old equipment left over.

We went last year and returned with our family. We didn't bring any children under 5 years. It is affordable and beautiful. You will find yourself forgetting that you are still in New York: it is just like another world.

I believe there are a few grills and there are a few places near the parking lot that you can set up. There are not grills or places within the park.
