The loop trail is just ok, with muddy, uninspired short trails that are confusing and poorly marked. The one lovely bright spot is the Mooney Carrese Forrest trail (well-marked with yellow/green plastic arrows) that leads southwest for almost a mile. Oddly, it's not drawn on the AllTrails map, but you can see it on the map at the park. It's a beautiful, wide, flat trail that leads through old growth forests and shallow pools that are icy and gorgeous in winter. It's well worth the trip out here, perfect for children who want a taste of wilderness.

There is no water or restrooms. There is a large covered pavilion with picnic benches and a grill. There is plenty of parking.
