Went to this trail this afternoon nice hike, but a little bit confusing to find. We went off of the loop path for about a half of a mile, but found our way back. Once on the path it was nice, some steep inclines but not all that challenging. We realized on the way back how to get on the loop trail. When you enter the park to the left of the first parking lot there is a sign with people hiking on it, you go past the sign and follow it down past a little pond. Then you will see a big bridge on the left and a smaller bridge straight in font of you, you go over the smaller bridge and there is a fork in the path, you bare to the right and go up the path and you will come to a second fork in the path ( one blue path one red) both are the loop you can pick what side you you want to start with.

This hike was good! be warned that we had to pay for parking and they only take cash. if it hadn't been for the park attendant giving us directions to the trail, I'm not sure I would have known where to go. The trail had a few steep sections, but wasn't challenging if you didn't rush it. A section of the red trail on the way out was a bit sketchy, with downed trees and overgrowth. I thought we'd taking a wrong turn! View at the top was pretty!
