This trail was alright, there were some flowers to enjoy in March when I went. But, I actually went off trail into the riverbed that was nearby and explored. If you have someone who loves geology, take them along because it was fascinating! You can see some geodes embedded in the rocks, and it was nice and cool in the afternoon. I might not go again, but it was fun to explore.
