Great hiking trails for all levels. Don't miss it. High Desert rock formations along the Crooked River are mesmerizing. Walk along the river for miles or test your endurance on the Misery trail. Great day.

There's only one car entrance and it's a short loop around so you can see most of what there is from the car before you decide to park
