Directions: Getting to Temple Canyon Park can be a challenge depending on the condition of the road. Although only 7.6 miles from the corner of US-50 and 1st St., the last 5 miles are not paved and many areas are prone to deep ruts from runoff. A high-clearance vehicle is recommended. Head south on 1st St., passed the Robison Mansion and Greenwood Cemetery for about one mile and then, at the "Y" turn right onto Temple Canyon Road. Proceed for 6.5 miles to a parking area next to the bridge over Grape Creek.
