My mom and I went on a Sunday morning (about 8:30am) and it was a beautiful day. We wanted to make it a half day so we went on the Staunton trail and back the same way. This totals to about 6.5 miles. I was surprised to see that such few people were there at that time. They did start showing up as time went on. This was a gorgeous and peaceful hike. A lot of trees but also some spots for sunshine. We didn't use sunscreen and did just fine. There seem to be so many trail options. Cant wait to hike more!

Not the best views, but a nice rolling hike with clearly marked trails, ample parking and only a few others around!
