There are a number of hiking trails throughout the range; whichever you choose, be sure to bring sufficient supplies, such as water and snacks. Often lacking natural shade, all hiking trails in the park are closed if the outside temperature rises above 37 °C (98 °F).

  • I went there thinking that it was the best, and was a very short route, where you only see red soil. I not the back or recommend it

  • Excellent visit to perform for those who love active and geological tourism. Advisable to do so with local guide or guide site and carry a liter bottle and a half two person water to hydrate. Another important tip is to wear a gown of 2.5 meters to help us in the natural steps that need to be overcome. Not to be missed is adventure.

  • It is a very nice place to visit, as he says other comments very similar to the Grand Canyon, but our. You could also say that despite their reddish nuances could compare with a walk on the lunar surface, that if not go on very hot days, take, hat and protective water because there are no places with shadow. Comes with the car to a parking lot where are located the offices of guardian Park and from there in more walk and enjoy the view with the landscape ranging from towering walls to very deep canyons, really worth knowing for lovers of nature.
