My wife and I hike down from the top of the bluff back to the park headquarters building. The weather was bright and sunny; the sandstone cliffs were awe inspiring with the scenery around the Platte River stretching north and east. The first 2/3 of the hike was the decent from the rock to the prairie. And the final leg across the prairie back to the office. This last section made us appreciate the struggles encountered by the Oregon Trail travelers of the 18th century who used this rock structure for one of their trail markers. We had a nice time, and were very happy we rode to the top in the park supplied shuttle van and made the hike downhill.
