I did a small backpacking trip with a few teenagers on this trail, and we all had a blast. Well marked trails and a nice campground!

this trail offers a beautiful scenic atmosphere while challenging your endurance a little bit. my 2 and 7 year old loved it

good scenic trail for the whole family

easy family walk

Fun, short hike

The spring is beautiful! Worth the hike down and then back up again!

I love the solitude of this trail. I run it weekly.

I loved this trail. Just make sure you give yourself enough time to complete and take your time. Would like to come back again. Very beautiful and easy to find. If you don’t want to finish all the way, there is a short cut you can take to take across the path to the finish. Not sure exactly where it’s at but after the 3rd mile maybe. I took it. Lol would have liked to go all the way around if I had enough daylight.

Paved path to some castle ruins. Couple of interesting overlooks. Good family outing.

Honestly just not too impressive. I’m sure we missed the wildflower season, and with the trail slightly overgrown all we saw were ticks... Will do the other trails instead of this one next time.

Easy hike to start off a full day of exploring the park. The path is paved which is nice. It was definitely the most crowded area of the park. Interesting to learn the history of the castle from the placards.

nice little trail. my kids and dog enjoyed it.

Well marked trail with great valley views, steep drops and lovely creek access. It was a wonderful spring hike. I would not think the view would not be as great with all the leaves on the trees.

Great for walking. The castles are really cool.

Was disappointed that you can not get close to the castle. But it is probably due to lack of respect from others. There is amazing views from the ruins.We did see a lot of vultures.

Love coming to this place! Beautiful all year round!

Great hike. Didn’t not do the full 7 because I left my cord to charge my phone but when I got back to my vehicle I seen a tower and walked in that direction and found a cave and bridge which led to the HA HA castle which was awesome and I would highly recommend it and I actually ended up doing 7 miles anyway lol
