Nice hike

Nice walk.

Awesome trail in terms of wildlife and good workout because can be longer then 6 miles. However make sure to pay attention because very little signage and bring a good GPS.

Great size park with trails leading off roads and walk ways, plenty of places to go and explore with great scenery!
