    Thanks to the other reviewer who gave very explicit directions from the gas station. Kudos! They were spot on. Make sure you stop in at the convenience store and grab some tamales and a burrito from B...  more »

    Simply amazing. Looks like badlands of dakota. I wonder why such a nice place is privately owned and not govt.

    This gem is located on private property, but open to public. It's a photographers paradise, absolutely breathtaking especially at sunset or sunrise. You'll find porta jons in the small dirt parking lot. Take water no matter what time of the year, you will need it, guaranteed. The trails are short, we only stayed at the main front rock formations so I'm not sure how long or short the trails might be. This place was made famous by local artists. Georgia O'Keeffe made a series of paintings about this place, she called it "The White Place". Thank you Dar Al Islam for allowing us to enjoy this beautiful gem.

    Great place to take your cat for a hike! As seen in Logan (Hugh Jackman) and The Lone Ranger (Johnny Depp)

    This is a great, out-of-the-way place with really alien geology.

    Second time here. Beautiful. Quiet stillness. Muslims can pray in two mosques nearby.
