  • I love user mountain. Lots to see and do and the desert is beautiful. Great place to go hiking and camping. It's easy to get to. And they keep the park very clean and maintained.
  • This is a nicely kept park, good trails for beginners and hiking enthusiasts. There are some moderate portions toward the last 25% of Wind Cave Trail which are not really suited for younger kids, but you can get a great 2 mile hike just by turning back when you reach the picnic area. It is a high-traffic trail most of the time, and I would avoid very hot days because there is not too much shade. We have hiked Wind Cave 3 times and still love it.
  • Nice outdoor range. Must visit if you are into these things and in the area. Avoid mid-day during summer months (there is shade but still gets really hot). Best place to shot outdoors in the winter months.
  • Excellent trails and well maintained park. The variety of trails can accommodate most every level of hiker. Be on the lookout for rattlesnakes in the morning at springtime.
  • Beautiful. About 30 miles of trails from easy to difficult. Love it.
