  • Window Cliffs is a very well.maintained park. There are 9 water crossing out and the same 9 back, we visited on 9/21 and there were only 3 water crossing that were ankle deep. Also, if you have water....  more »
  • This place is just about 10 - 15 minutes off the Interstate, but is still a wonderful hidden gem. There are rarely more than just a few cars in the parking lot - and the hike is excellent. This hike.....  more »
  • Simply put, the hike is amazing. The hike is 5.5 miles round trip. I would rate this trail as moderately difficult. The change in elevation at the beginning is your biggest challenge on your way...  more »

  • Beautiful hike. Water crossings were cool and fun. The view from the top of the rock formations was awe inspiring.
  • Hard walk but worth it! Beautiful waterfall pures into a deep clean swimming hole. Just before you reach an amazing photogenic rock formation
  • Awesome hike which includes 18 Creek crossings (round trip) which in mid April were about knee high at the deepest areas. Highly recommend water hiking shoes or hiking sandal. Also bring a hiking pole, several of the lines to cross the creek were gone so the extra point of reference is very helpful. Pack a snack to enjoy at the window cliff and don't forget an extra water. The worst park of the hike was the switchback return at the end, but the experience is worth it!
  • Nice CLEAN park!!! Trail is Hard/strenuous 5 & half mile/3 hours round trip to Cliff Top area!!! 18 creek crossings!!! This park has only been open since April 2017!!! Lots of wildlife.... Park closes hour before dark!!! Great views & waterfalls!!! Be Safe!!!
  • Great hike! Really enjoyed crossing the streams! Wonderful view of the cliff windows and waterfalls. Be sure to wear shoes that are comfortable wet.
