This is a great trail for the little ones you will learn some things about the area from the interpretive signs along the way. There is some steep uphill but as a whole this is a great hike. There are lots of things to do here from fishing, swimming, and hiking to camping and picnics. It's a nice little gem not to far out of the way.

The trail shown is the LST trail, which is roughly a half mile. There are some neat little landmarks. Kids like to wade/swim here as it's not too deep.

The main trail which starts at the first parking lot is just over 5 miles and is bi-directional. Hikers walk one way and bicyclists go the opposite way. The direction is switched monthly. The big arrow in the parking lot show the current direction for that month.

If you're hiking and get tired, there are several opportunities to get off the trail and cut back to the parking lot. Just study/take pics of the map and you'll do fine.

We hiked the shorter trail, Leroy Smith nature trail. The longer one is called JFA, Jorge Francisco Arango, and is a little over 5 miles. Even just the shorter trail was nice with plenty to see and enjoy. I didn't seem to find a short trail called Sassy's Pass.

Getting back into this and this is a great beginner / intermediate trail. Just about ready to take on something tougher. If you're out of shape, this is still entirely doable, and a great workout. Either way, it's a really fun ride.

recorded JFA?
