Beautiful views. There was a pretty steep part of the climb, but well worth it.

Easy hike with a pretty last half mile or so and nice views from the peak, but most of the trail weaves between bogs and there are an ungodly number of Mosquitos.

Bring bug spray!

Interesting site and hike, got me huffing and puffing. It is interesting to see the volcanic caldara that these mountains form.

I hiked from the main park entrance towards north peak, which didn't look all that far away by the map. It was much further than I expected, and trails were not all well maintained, signs were unclear- listed trail names that weren't on my map?- and there was horse manure everywhere in the middle of the trails. Tons of bugs and walking through all the overgrown grass in the trails made me worry about ticks. Someone later told me that south peak is much more enjoyable hike. Seems like a nice park and its enormous, I didn't have the time to explore more, but will definitely give it another chance.

The bugs will eat you alive on a hot muggy day, but I love both North + South
