“Easy access from the road with paved trails amongst beautiful crystal-like petrified wood.”— Ramoun Cabuhay
Family Friendly An easy, rolling paved trail with crystalized wood logs located very close to the parking lot.
The best times to visit would be early morning or late afternoon as the sun provides photographers with excellent shots of the wood as well as beautiful shots of the surrounding landscape. Also, these times of day provide milder temperatures making the trip much more enjoyable.
