  • We drove the loop and stopped for many photo opportunities. A beautiful place and a very informative visitor center. Worth the visit for the whole family.

  • It’s a breathtaking scenic drive, surrounded by mountains. It’s so calm and serene. The scenic drive is a must , if you are interested to overcome, mini roller coaster. The drive has lots of loops and bends. But it’s definitely awesome and with lots of pits stops, to take many pictures. Just saw one red rock canyon. Take a drive during sunset 🌅. It’s just wow!! ❤️The ride is definitely romantic, if you are a lover of nature..!😍
  • Epic! Exceptional!! I was COMPLETELY ENTHRALLED by the display of nature and rolling, picturesque viewpoints. You get a good sense that it's a sacred expanse. It is well-worth the price of the ticket driving through. We stopped to take a brief hike on one of many viewpoint/stops, with plenty of parking and lots of pleasant fellow patrons to add to the overall positive experience. At the entrance gate, the attendant was so friendly and warm. We will happily be back! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!
