Betty’s Kitchen Interpretive Trail Area has an unusual name. Although the name might conjure up a restaurant, that isn’t what you will find when you arrive in the area. It is at an elevation of 155 feet. This lush, shady spot along the Colorado River is perfect for hikers, picnickers, and fishers.
Hikers will find a half-mile interpretive trail. It is an easy trail and is great for wildlife observation. The best time to hike the trail is from September to May.
Those who enjoy fishing will like the fishing pier. It is a peaceful spot to take in the outdoors.
