  • Access road superb and a peû long but spotted points of views: to do that by big beautiful, the small trail to the end (3km in A_/R) is also to do for its beauty and calm.

  • Fun drive with great views of both canyons and mountains. The scenic overlooks were better than the end though. Make sure you stop for them. A couple have very short trails perfect for little ones. The road is well-maintained. The round trip took only 80 minutes with multiple stops.
  • Good views after an 1 mile hike.
  • Beautiful view. Well worth the hike

  • Way fun motorcycle ride!
