This was the perfect trail for a 6 month pregnant woman and friend to do to get out of the house and enjoy nature.

This is basically a sidewalk running past the initial parking and picnic areas of this park. There are several overlooks, lots of plant life, and it's super easy if you have kids or people who wouldn't normally be able to access a hike. With that said, it's well worth it to continue on past this part for the real views and hiking.
