Online registration required. Limited to ten participants. For the month of October and November, the park will be offering two guided-only hikes, 10am and then again at 3pm to go down into the canyon to view pictographs (ancient drawings) on Wednesday through Sunday. There are no tours available on Monday and Tuesday.

Participants will observe social distancing rules throughout the tour, face coverings are not expected, however they are strongly encouraged.

No access into the canyon and/or to view pictographs unless participating in this guided tour.

Do I need a guide to see the pictographs and why? Yes, the park provides an approved guide (either staff or docent). This is for your safety and protection of the park's natural and cultural resources.

What is the tour fee: Children under the age of 4 are free and children ages 5-12 are $5.00, and ages 13-adult is $8.00. 

Are there any other fees associated with this tour? YES, there is a Park entrance fee per person based on ages 13 to adult, cost of $4.00 per person (no entry fee for children ages 12 and under). 

When and how do I register for a tour?  No morning or afternoon tours offered November 18th, 19th and the morning of the 20th. The Park will offer the 3pm tour on November 20th. Register 30 days in advance from date of tour and click on this link to open the online reservation system.

How long is the tour? This tour usually is about 90 minutes in time and 1.5 miles in length. We suggest the use of our bathroom facilities before the tour. 

Who can participate in the tour? Almost anyone. Participants should be in reasonably good health and physically able to walk down and up steep staircases. Guides will move at a comfortable pace and the group stays together.

What if I miss the tour? Guides cannot hold the group/tour to wait for late arrivals, if you arrive late you will not be able to join the tour.

What should I bring and wear? You will need drinking water, camera, batteries, and personal medications. During extreme hot temperatures visitors have  found that silver-lined/sunbrellas umbrellas help provide mobile shade.

Clothing: Dress for the weather and seasons, long sleeved shirts/long pants in the summer helps shield the skin from the sun. Shoes: closed-toed shoes/sandals with good traction (hiking boots and athletic shoes).

When are tours cancelled and do they get rescheduled? Rapid changing and unpredictable weather is the major factor in the decision to cancel a tour, which include: extreme hot temperatures (98.F+), rain/wet conditions, lightning or other declared hazardous conditions. In the event of a cancellation, the tours are not rescheduled.

CHILDREN MUST BE ACCOMPANIED BY PARENT/ADULT

WHILE ON TOUR: THERE IS NO SMOKING (this includes e-cigarettes), NO EATING OF FOOD AND NO PETS ALLOWED

**School groups must contact the park prior to park arrival.**
