  • The trails here are very clean and well kept. The views are beautiful with every turn. I came here while vacationing and wanted to go for a hike in the morning and it was quit refreshing.

  • I liked this trail. There are clear signs to take you on the 3.22 mile hike. There are also signs along the way that will take you to rest stops. One of my favorite areas was something I don't know what else to call besides a "balcony deck". It's near the 2 mile marker and had a nice view of everything around you. You do have to pay for parking, I paid $3.25 for 4 hours. (It's in increments of 4 or 8 hours). At one point my friend and I saw a deer! It was right in the middle of the trail munching on shrubs. I'm very thankful we didn't see any other sort of wildlife besides that and lizards. There are caution signs for snakes and cougars. It was very peaceful and serene, not much shade under trees at all, if you need shade head to their picnic structures. I saw pictures of water falls which is something I wanted to see, but it is not on the directed 3.22 mile hike, I think you need to walk a different direction for that.
  • One of my favorite places to go when in town. Lots of rocks perfect for relaxing with a view. Limited parking but the scenery is worth the hike. Parking has been updated as well-prepare to pay via QR code.
