Description 

Downey Park is a wide & long mountain valley surrounded by a multitude of rock formations and diced with mountain brooks. The park or broad valley extends across a mild saddle which is very near the Albany County/Converse County boundary. Rock Formations Everywhere are scattered along the valley sides. Stream flowing south end up in La Bonte Creek and those going north either flow into West La Bonte Creek or if further north they likely are drained by the Wagon Hound Creek.

Several of the "rib" cracks were top roped when we realized we needed a land status map and GPS to navigate [on public access] in the rocks on the east side of Downey Park.
