We have placed these three short hikes together as they all depart from the same trailhead. On these journeys hikers can view some of the park’s most rugged rock formations. Throughout the area hikers are treated to vast panoramas of spires, “doors in the walls,” and steep gullies. Because of the interplay of light, the design changes constantly, almost whimsically, creating a photographer’s paradise, especially in the morning and early evening. Nothing here is ever the same.
