Nice area for being a small state park. Trail heads were easy to find and had large gravel lots. Did the heritage trail starting from the southern trail head near 30 and hiked north, turning it into a loop using some connector trails, which were not well marked. The trail was easy and not a whole lot to see, but it wasn't crowded and was a nice walk

Spent Easter weekend in pouring rain backpacking. It was pretty good. Only two sleep over camp sites though so you have to maneuver the loop trail to your liking. I hiked from the office up the long way around to first site. Really liked the half hooches and the space. Hiked about hour and half or so to the next site and decided to punch through and head back to Jeep. Loved it for just an over nighter though.
