The best thing to visit!! I was so impressed how clean and well kept the entire area was. So much fun walking/hiking around the Garden. The views are amazing and totally free.

So Beautiful! A MUST SEE if you’re visiting in the area! Tons of free parking and the rocks and exploring are all free as well. Such an incredible experience! (I would suggest packing a backpack with sunscreen, a water bottle and maybe some snacks.. it can get a little hot!)
So much beauty. This was a great way to spend 4 hours with the kids. I recommend at least 1:1 or 1:2 for adults to kids though. Make sure you have adequate individuals to carry little ones with tired legs. Also, be aware rattlesnakes are seen occasionally. Avoid them and they will avoid you.
