Today was our first time on the NP trail. The hike was good but the highlight was when a small fawn, about 18"H×18"L came right up to me and sniffed my leg. I've never had that experience before, at least not in the wild. we will definitely be back!

It was pretty, well marked, and easy. It was busy with lots of hikers and mountain bikers. Unfortunately, the waterfall on McKay Hollow was nonexistent.
