Most of the park is off-limits to hikers and scramblers by city ordinance, requesting users to stay on designated use trails and walks to limit erosion of habitat and tourist liability. Off the Palmer Trail there are some well used trails over hard rock that were not signed or blocked off that lead along a north south ridge at the border of the Pike National Forest that provides an observation view of the sandstone garden formations to the east from one of the highest elevations that the park appears to allow access without restrictions without actually climbing the named formations.
