Confusing at times but generally a great hike. To many ways to get off correct path.

RunningGreat!

Nice easy walk in the woods. Varied scenery. Lots of birds and 2 snakes, as well as a squirrel eating a pine cone. Lots of foot traffic so bring your mask and silently judge the people who didn’t.

Perfect day, perfect weather, wasn’t crowded. Trail was well marked and plenty of places to stop and picnic or use the bathroom.

It is a nice small trail. It was easy for small children. But it could be better. ))

Nice walk in the woods. Slight elevation in places. I would’ve lost my way a few times without this app.

WalkingGreat!Off trail

Was a beautiful park, parts were really stunning however got lost a lot. Just kept following the 5 mile sign but colors kept changing indicating we were on different trails but then figured out we were walking along the outer limits hence the longest trail. Totally missed the geysers and springs. Want to see it but the trail wasn’t that exciting that I’d do it again. Definitely better options for people wanting a challenge. This is more like an easy stroll through a pretty park.

Really nice! A bit more like a walk in the park than a hikey hike, but it had its moments that felt like being in the woods. It was also all in the shade, which made it nice even during the hottest part of the day. You can park in the big lot outside the trail entrance rather than driving past the little kiosk and paying a fee to park. Trail itself is a little confusing, kind of starfish shaped. Checked the app’s map a bunch and it was fine though. Really nice park.

Nice walk in the woods. Trail is not marked well, but the app is helpful for navigating the park. We paid $10 to enter the park and access the trail. Was very busy.
