Hiking enthusiasts are encouraged to take the Paradise Creek Trail which begins just a short distance from the picnic area.Just across the road from the parking lot is Hospital Rock where some of the finest examples of local Native American pictographs can be seen. The granite rocks near the pictographs of Hospital Rock served many purposes such as a shelter, a place of healing, and a location for ceremonies. Native Americans call this place Pah-din, which means place to go through.
