Trail running. Fun path with all kinds of terrain, turns and elevations. Did the green and blue loop. Not a very shaded trail so glad we did it on a cloudy day and had water on us. Trail was well marked and always friendly encounters with other hikers and mountain bikers. Can't wait to go back and add the red loop.

Very nice weekend hike! The trails are narrow and we had to step to the side often to allow bikers to pass, but it was always a friendly encounter. Would recommend.

This should be tagged with SPIDERS :(

I'm sure that this place is pretty cool, on an overall basis, but I had an awful experience. My boyfriend and I went at the end of the day yesterday (on a Sunday), and we just wanted to hike for an hour or two. We didn't know we had to pay an entrance fee (which in retrospect makes sense for a state park), so that sucked since we weren't going to be there that long.

But anyways, my main point is to say - If you don't like spiders, DO NOT go on the Dorba trail in October. We hiked about a mile into the trail, and suddenly realized we were surrounded by them, and they were huge! I have terrible arachnophobia, so this was a huge issue for me.

Yes, I realize we were walking into nature's environment, but I'm just posting this as a warning for others who enjoy nature but hate spiders like I do. They were literally everywhere, hanging down from all of the trees, on either side of the trail, and they were low too, so if you weren't paying attention, you would in fact run into them.

I just read that it's prime spider season (which I didn't know), so I just want other people to be aware.

Again, I'm sure the park is cool, but just wanted people to know!
