Things to do
Rimrock Scenic Vista
Wide views and fresh air... From atop the massive boulders at Rimrock, enjoy a sweeping view of the reservoir and mountain landscape. Be sure to have your camera ready. Hiking paths are available, offering spectacular views along the way. Catch a glimpse of soaring hawks or eagles, as well as boaters on the water. Exercise caution and be aware of your surroundings at all times when hiking along paths without guardrails.
Descend stone stairways between narrow walls of massive boulders. Prepared hikers with proper footwear can further explore the rock formations from below, and enjoy an incredible view looking up, as well as inside caves and stone nooks. While guardrails are available in some places, the stone steps can make for rugged terrain.
