The area with the most color was very interesting. There were enough little nooks and crannies to walk into that you could get some really nice views of the rock. We decided to hike the trail that we… Full review by Lisa E

Yes, definitely! The roads to get there are nicely paved as well, there is a bit of time on chip gravel, but its very short, and flat as well. Its well worth it, the parking lot would be easy to pull …

Q:
My kids are age 1, 3, 5, and 7. The 1 year old will be carried. In particular for my 3 year old what trails would you recommend that would be most "bang for your buck". Want to see as much of the best formations but without the super rigorous hikes. Also how long should we plan to be there? They day we will be there there is 50% chance of thunderstorms so trying to plan in advance for it. Thanks.

The lower parking lot is an easy walk into the "heart" of the Park. Highly recommend staying on the sandy ground floor and not walk all over the formations (although most people break the rules and do so). It's a beautiful, but fragile area, and should be preserved so your children can take their children there someday.
Q:
Are there any poisonous snakes to watch out for such as rattlesnakes?
A:
We have been told to beware of rattlers in that area.

A:
I would not recommend the paint mines for anyone who is unable to walk far. Actually in the mine area the paths are quite uneven so not suitable for a wheel chair. The path over the field towards the mines is quite level but is also up and down so would be hard to push a wheelchair unless you are strong!!!
