Visitors enjoy hiking, mountain biking, camping , historical study, and nature viewing. Fate Bell Shelter, in the canyon, contains some of North America's oldest Native American pictographs and is one of the oldest cave dwellings in North America.

The park interpretive center has exhibits relating to the history of the canyon area.
The Fate Bell Shelter Tour is held Wednesday through Sunday ($5 per person five and older). From June 1 through Aug. 31 the Fate Bell Tour will be held at 10 a.m. only. From Sept. 1 through May 31, the Fate Bell Shelter Tours will begin at 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. The Fate Bell Shelter Tour involves a fairly-rugged hike to the bottom of the canyon and then up to the shelter to view many good examples of American Indian rock paintings in Fate Bell Shelter. Park staff and volunteers with the private, nonprofit Rock Art Foundation conduct tours of the Fate Bell Shelter, continuing the group's history of support for the site. The shelter is a huge cliff overhang containing some of the state's most spectacular American rock paintings.
The Rock Art Foundation also conducts White Shaman Tours. For tour details and departure location, visit the Rock Art Foundation website or contact them at (888) 525-9907.
