    This is an awesome area to hike. From a distance it looks like the spine of a dinosaur. When you get there, there's awesome views. Also not a difficult hike at all.

    Would be five stars because the park itself is awesome and well laid out.... BUT I noticed ALOT of garbage, they should warn about rattlesnakes since we saw one on the trail... My main reason for two stars though is the fact that all the natural and gorgeous views have now been taken away by unnecessarily huge houses taking over...

    Well marked trails. Not too strenuous. The Keyhole offers a nice view of the mountains. Bring plenty of water. It's a very open area with little shade. Good spot for trail running and mountain biking.

    Well maintained trails and options depending on how long or difficult a hike you want to take. I love the view and the rangers are always helpful when you have questions.
