Nice park and nice staff. Choose from hiking, biking, horseback, golf, dining and much more. Some of the trails are loop and some are out and back. All are well maintained. Be sure to stay on marked trails because there are hidden cliff edges.
I love the trails here! Going to try to jog this one next time!
I've hiked this trail many times and is a short, quick hike if you are pressed for time. We completed it in about 50 minutes and that was with 10 or so minutes at the top sitting on the rocks. Only 300' elevation gain, so it gets the blood flowing and then you are the top, so not too difficult of an incline. What bothers me most about this trail is it takes you near a small shale pit right in the middle of the park. They should've put the shale pit elsewhere because it detracts from the natural beauty and serenity of the trail.
Lots of beautiful wildlife.
