  • You can drive to the top for a view or take a moderate walk (1 mile with an elevation change of 120 feet) but either way this is one of the key attractions of the Petrified Forest National Park  more »
  • As magical view from above, since the small trail park offers! Many do not dare go down while the small hike is really not long... Feel free to use the trail, it's worth... The dunes show shades of blue/violet really incredible!

  • Loved the area! The hike was only a mile but had one part when you had to go up hill. Not bad if you take your time. Wonderful sights! One of my two favorite places in this park!!!  more »
