A bit wet in spots, and some good climbs, definitely a moderate trail. Well rated and excellent hike.

Great local trail with interesting elevations and varying terrain and sights. Great Rock formations. Trails are decently marked except for a couple of areas.

Fairly easy hike. There are two trails, one which is significantly more challenging than the other. Very nice foliage but no views.

It's a beautiful day in this amazing park. If you haven't been here it's totally worth the visit.

I thoroughly enjoyed this trail. Took us around 2 hours to complete. Before you pull into the state park, the trail begins BUT if you want a cardio workout, I recommend parking at the visitors center and going past the outhouse (there's signs) this way was 70% uphill, if you're not a fan of steep hills you might be better off going the other way. Wolf Den is creepy cool. saw lots of wildlife, very shady walk. There's a huge rock not long after wolf den where we stopped and ate our lunch. I definitely will be back!
