"We have 90 minutes - 2 hours"
You'll have time to do everything listed above for 1-hour, plus a hike around the 3/4-mile Circle Trail. This is a paved, relatively flat trail with views of quartzite cliffs, tallgrass prairie, and a waterfall. While the trail is not American Disabilities Act (ADA)-compliant, it may be wheelchair accessible with some assistance (see Accessibility).
"We're here for as long as it takes, time is not an issue"
You'll have time to do everything listed for 1-hour, but instead of exploring the Circle Trail on your own, may have the option for a guided tour if you visit between April and October.
During the winter season there won't be cultural demonstrators and guided tours are rare due to limited staff, but snowshoes are availabe to check out for free. Seeing the frozen waterfall and snow-covered, pink quartzite cliffs is something most visitors don't experience, but is always worth it.
