We drove the rest of the way to Red Rock and drove through the whole park to check things out first. The canyon was once a Winter Camp for the Plains Indians, and later was a stop along the California Road Trail. Today there are camping and RV spots, lots of picnic areas, some playgrounds, a pool with a small splash pad area, a couple of trails, and several places to rock climb/rappel. We were planning on hiking, but the trail was pretty steep for a new walker and three year old. So we opted out of that for some other activities better suited for our little ones.
Climbing the kids' rock
We should have taken swimsuits- the pool and water area looked fun!
Snow cone stop in Hinton before heading home
Isabella said her favorite part was throwing rocks, climbing the rock, and having a snow cone and listening to pony songs. (Sometimes its hard to choose just one favorite part! ;)
