Wide, level trail from the park headquarters to the floating pier. It should be okay for all abilities but the last bit of the trail to the pier is downhill, so the return might be tough on some few individuals. Wide, level trail with picnic shelters along the route.
A bit too civilized, but a nice walk just the same. I was there on a beautiful Sunday in June so it should be no surprise that there were a lot of cookouts. A big storm went through a few days ago so there was a lot of blowdown but all of the trails in the park had been cleared.
