[section_title title=Family Food & Fun]
There are a lot of options for family fun at Cloudland Canyon SP that don’t involve hiking up and down the canyon. We enjoyed geocaching near the interpretive center and playing a round disc golf. We’ve added mountain biking to our to-do list for the next visit after discovering that Cloudland Canyon offers miles of mountain bike trails perfect for beginners or experts.
Looking over the map, the boys spied a wildlife observation tower. A short walk through the woods leads to the tower that overlooks a small pond. Great for afternoon fishing on the pond or an evening meal at the secluded picnic table. Climb the observation tower to watch the wildlife during twilight. The short trail that leads to the tower is accessible from the disc golf parking lot.
When it came time to hunt down some supper, we headed to Canyon Grill. Take a left out of West Rim Campground and drive straight out of the park.. take a left and after about a quarter-mile you’ll come across a convenient store and Canyon Grill on your right. The park ranger pointed me to the Canyon Grill when I needed my morning coffee and we returned to try the burgers that locals were bragging about. I’m glad we did because they were fantastic cooked-to-order bacon cheeseburgers!
That’s all for our second visit to Cloudland Canyon! Our to-do list for the next visit includes backcountry camping and mountain biking! See you there!
