A barren place. The Petrified trees were quite nice. But poor management of the park in combination with conflicting messaging as to how you can explore the park leaves one in a daze. You are instructed you must remain on marked trails or be fined while also being encouraged to go on the "Off The Beaten Path" hikes. We didn't get a chance to go on any of the "Off The Beaten Paths" hikes, but from the provided instructions, it appears to be pretty much wondering around.
