11/9/19 - Really nice trail with great markings. You start off going through the visitor center, which has ample parking. There is an educational video every 20 minutes and a $10 fee per person to get into the park to hike. The pass lasts 7 days but still a little pricey if you’re just coming for the day. We started on the petrified forest loop and hopped onto the Hornbeck Wildlife Loop. Coming from that direction there were several pretty steep/moderate inclines. But the rest of the trail I would rate as easy. You get to see the Hornbeck ranch on this trail as well. The trail was half clear and half ice/snow which made it a little difficult on descents, but you can manage with a nice pair of hiking boots.

Nice loop that's mostly easy with a couple of moderate spot. Breezy, but nice weather today. Only one bridge under construction. Trail was dry and clear.

easy long loop with lots of animals. storms usually come in around 2-3pm during the spring and summer. removed 1 star because you have to cross a main road that drivers speed on.
