hiking are the main attractions in this arid region.  Tall, steep canyon walls spring up from the green valley meadows. Visitors can hike the scenic loop trails that roam both the bottom of the canyon and the rim, or for pure relaxation, just bring a picnic lunch and enjoy the views.

To get there take Colorado Highway 83 South approximately 5 miles past the intersection with Colorado Highway 96.  The entrance to the park is on the right (west).
