This place is spectacular, recommend going in spring or after a heavy down fall, because is is very dry and creeks do dry up very quickly too. Recommended for experienced hikers and campers to do it over a week. Day hiking is quite good too
Great place to visit wish I could have stayed longer! Great walking spots and lookouts lots of different landscapes to look at.
