Very easy, yet very enjoyable hike. The trail itself consists of mainly just matted grass and is very well marked. The only thing to really watch out for is gopher holes as they can be quite large and deep. Other than that, it was a nice hike and you really can't ask for better views. Ranger Station was well staffed and there were several souvenirs available for purchase. Keep in mind that dogs are allowed on this trail, however they are not in any other trail located near the Ranger Station. Dogs are allowed on two others trails that reside just past the main park entrance on Highway 4.
