I walked the 7 mile Out and Back trail when very few people were in the park. This would be a fantastic trail to run. The first mile is a wide open trail cut through the tall grass and bushes. The next five miles are primarily walked in the forest with a wide trail. The trail is easy to follow with mile markers every .25 miles. Very flat. Few tree roots on the trail. Great trail.

Beautiful, well marked trail. Love the combination of ridge walking and waterfall climbing.
