The trail is okay. Definitely easy for those with limited mobility. What made the outing awesome is the ranch buildings and the incredibly knowledgeable park ranger. I took my son this spring, right after he turned 16, and we made a day of it at the park. Touring the buildings and talking with the park ranger made our day. We learned so much and I'm just sorry that I cannot remember the ranger's name.

Very well-preserved ranch at the end of this trail.

This trail is part of the loop on the east side just past the ranch. Early settlers used the spring as a lifeline for survival and also recreation. Entering the pond is prohibited of course, since it's basically a historic site.

This trail in on the way to Smith Spring. I believe it was a rancher's pond before the park was there. Lots of birds
