Nice hike. Lots of branches off the trail. Used the Alltrails app to track our walk and keep us on the right trail. Small parking lot fills up quickly but there is parking on street. Lots of hikers and bikers. Single file for most of the trail with scattered rocks and roots.

Hiked the perimeter of the park with my dog, just over 5 miles. Trails seemed to be primarily used for mountain biking, pretty moderate use. Well marked trail with maps at every intersection. Other hikers, trail runners, and cyclists were all very courteous. Fair amount of horse poop on the trail, which my dog rolled in. Lots of foraging potential - many types of berries, nettle, devil's club, etc. etc. Very easy and pleasant hiking. I ran into a cyclist who seemed to be a regular on the trail, he warned me that someone had recently seen a bear on the trail. I carried bear spray and didn't see any scat or other signs of bears, but immense quantities of berries would certainly be a draw.
