Solid experience. Wish we had taken the path that strayed to the left, taking hikers up to the top of the tall rock facing. Didn't notice it until the trip back down from the blue trail though. Overall pretty good!
a little difficult in the fall due to loose rocky terrain covered by leaves but very pretty and easy to make it as short or as long as you like with many trail options
Place is a great place to get out and hike. The Giant Head is a must do!
It was great
Tower to blue and to violet!
fun and a bit challenging. my dog was sore the next day from pretending to be a mountain goat
Went up blue and down violet. Trails were awesome and the park was clean. Unfortunately the tower was closed today for maintenance but otherwise awesome
lots of great trails. I can't wait to explore them all.
Great views, mod to difficult steep climb
Hike the blue trail, will marked give it a try
Love this place!!!!
amazing hike, challenging great view. poorly marked trails though, very confusing but also very hard to get lost.
