Throughout the year, the Park offers a variety of interpretive tours and events. Whether you choose to participate or not is completely up to you. Just last week we took on one of the Park’s toughest treks. We started at the W. Cottonwood Springs trailhead and hiked (a very strenuous) eight miles up to North Franklin Peak and back. The views were worth every breath!
Later this month, they are hosting another one of their very popular Aztec Cave Tours. This hike is a moderate 1.5 miles. It begins with a gradual incline through a well-maintained switchback trail to wide open vistas to the west. The return trip travels down over scree, or rubble, proving to be challenging for some. Reservations required; to reserve your spot, call the office at (915) 444-9100.
