Logistical Note

The site is a National Park, but as of April 2018 there is no entrance fee, no opening hours are posted, and there are no rest rooms. This may soon change.  A Visitors Center is being built. Already the paths are well laid-out and marked, but there is still a good deal of plant growth between them. For this reason it is advisable to wear long pants and walking shoes. The only shade is at the jujube tree, so one should also have a hat and plenty of water.
