Took my son here for some different scenery. We camped the night before on Pinery Canyon Rd - had the entire place to ourselves. It was pretty chilly at night, but the perfect temp for hiking the next day.

We took the shuttle up to Echo Canyon and hiked Echo > Hailstone > Mushroom Rock > Big Balanced Rock > Heart of Rocks > Sarah Demming > Lower Rhyolite > Visitor's Center. We skipped Inspiration Point, as it seemed to have the worst fire damage. The junction of Inspiration Pt. with the Mushroom Rock Tr. and the Big Balanced Rock Tr. was really torched. There is much new growth, but it will be a long time before shade happens there again. Fortunately, the best parts of the park were untouched (Upper Echo Canyon, the west side of Big Balanced Rock Tr. and the Heart of Rocks). It's still very much worth the trip.

Compliments, once again, to the Park Service who runs this place. They really are a class act.
