Day Use
      Group Use


      • Roads and trails in this area can become very slippery when wet making them unsafe or impassable for both vehicle and foot traffic. (This is due to the high content of bentonite, a clay-like material.) The access road from the viewpoint to the park's day use area is often closed during wet conditions.
      • In mid-October, the park access road gate is closed for the season which blocks access to the day use area in the valley. Vehicles can still access the viewpoint.

        Summer Activities

        * Permitted activities may vary within a park. Please confirm details with park staff.
