Went with a friend and his family to help introduce them to hiking. This is a great place to enjoy the local wildlife and use your binoculars.

Had a lot of fun. First time. Was able to buy the parking pass via easily posted 1 (866) 320-9933. $11 for one day, $35 for the year. No brainier. I grab the $35 for training in this mountain for my next ultra. (You will need it if you really want to know this MT. There are a lot of crossroads. So like those before me warned...stay directionally conscious. I Hope to to the 30 mile loop in the next 30-45 days.

I tried to post pictures and will hope to post more signage to help the next go round for anyone.

Really awesome first 2.5 miles listening to flowing water, and that transcends to really nice wind through the mountains.

Enjoy

Great trail. Very clean. If you follow this map, you won't see the falls. The falls are on the west trail. And this map is the east trail.
