Lovely weather made us seek a local trail for Sunday morning hike. This trail is narrow (which we didn't like) but went through pretty scenery and just the amount of light elevation I was seeking. Friendly people, and cyclists sharing the trail. Not my favorite hike, but nice enough to do again if we have limited time.

There are actually lots of well marked trails through this hiking park. We parked at the bottom in the state park lot (for a fee) but thoroughly enjoyed the hours we spent exploring. Recommend taking "No Name Ridge" trail up and cutting across on Ticketron to Rattlesnake which are narrower trails. We finished going down the bottom of the canyon and out.
