Hike to the Shingle Gully Area

This rugged, protected landscape is accessible only on guided tours led by Park staff and volunteer docents.

Due to COVID protocols, the total number of participants for this program is limited to ten individuals. All participants must wear face coverings or keep a minimum of six-foot distance away from others who are not part of their immediate household.
