This was my first time going hiking at this park and i absolutely ended up hating it. Never again. The trails are completely overgrown and the signs aren't up to date. Had to double-back a few times because halfway down one of the trails, we hit a dead end even though thats where the sign pointed to. there are any markers for extremely long periods of time to help you get your bearings. if that wasn't bad enough, they are SO MANY COWS because the fence has been knocked down, it would not be so bad if you could just walk by/around them bht these animals were very VERY agressive even when trying to walk by them from a great distance. got a really bug scare when one charged at us over the trampled fence. Views were really nice at times but not worth the struggle AT ALL. They need to put way more time into maintaining the trails visible and updating markers. DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY!!!!!!

Nice hiking. Not too hard. The trail disappears after Spike Peak. We used the app to stay on track. Worked perfect.

I would not suggest this trail during summer time or during any hot weather. Some very good elevation changes. Bring water.
