Photo tour

The most prominent feature of this area is a massive rock that you can walk across and admire the scenery. Many unusual plants can be found here, and there are hiking trails with several steep climbs.

Unfortunately, vandals have defaced much of the main rock with spray-paint. However, if you are willing to go off the main pathways, there are some fascinating places to explore in this heritage preserve!
