Lots of up and down walking. Will feel the burn.
This is great if you have small kids. They have concrete markers with animal tracks that are great for getting little ones into the outdoors. I had my children make crayon rubbings in their outdoor notebooks and they loved it. Simple, short, fun.
A short trail, great for beginners/children. This trail leads to a primitive camping site, which could be great for hammock campers. Along the trail, they had plaques with animals paws to differentiate the animals and their foot print (though I did not see many birds or animals on this trail). We spent maybe 25-30 minutes along this trail (we were taking a leisurely time observing our surroundings). This trail is overgrown, but easy to walk through.
Small trail and good if you have small kids. Generally closed if it rains and also you can find some scorpions, just look out.
Decent primitive camping close to home. Busy on weekends. Nothing spectacular, but convenient.
The trail is poorly marked and overgrown. It's a very short trail if you're not into hiking. There's a restroom near the top of the loop.
