There was still a fair amount of snow and mud on the trail (early April) but the views were beautiful. We saw quite a few people so I'm guessing that it's pretty busy in the summer.

Gorgeous trail, close to home. Not challenging, but a really nice walk when I need to get away "quick." I'm amazed at every turn when I'n reminded that such beauty is in my own back yard! Will likely do again and again in all seasons because of its close proximity.

One of my favorite hikes in that area. Lots of free space to roam around and explore and really easy going.

Great for any level of adventure, run the tabletop loop (2miles) or straight back to the replica sight and back ~4miles. Half trees and shade, half meadow edge. Great in June July August

A nice easy hike with great views that is easy to get to. It gets a little hot, so it might be better to go earlier in the day. It would also be an easy mountain bike ride because it is not too steep or technical.
