We went here with family (including several children) to get out of the house. The site was beautiful, and the trails and facilities were all well kept. We all enjoyed the exercise the stairs provided, and kids burned some energy without really knowing it! We will be back here again for sure!

The visitor center provides an excellent historical explanation and basis for understanding the geology. It is an excellent learning experience for ages 7 and above. It will be a challenge for anyone that has difficulty walking or taking stairs.
