Only 3 because at this time it 'only has limited access, and no trail map that you can carry and see where you are going or want to take when it branched out. I had a limited of time, but without a trail map, I can't figure out real time, which trail (other than sticking to main trail) to take. I studied the map before I go, but didn't make a print, thinking I will get one on location. So, the message is print a map and take it with you. Of-course if you are smart phone savvy that will help you too. I only did the 3 miles main trail which everybody else is taking too, so a little bit more people than I expected. It's a multi purpose trail, so you will encountered pets, mountain bikers, didn't see any horse rider when I was there, but horse poo all over the trails. I already pick a trail for my next hike, hopefully it's open. So don't let my 3 starts discourage you, give it a try. Plan ahead, which trail, where to park, how long the hike, etc. Maybe arrive earlier, I arrived at 8 AM and as I said, too many people for my liking. Don't forget to bring $4 cash, you need to slip this cash into a red post slot at the head of the trails.

After a few days of rain everything turns green up here. So nice to see and walk through. We are only a few miles away and had never taken the hike. Our neighbors recommended it and we were glad we decided to see for ourselves. Depending on which trail you take, there is a variety. Some historical buildings are worth seeing. Some trails have resting spots. Before you go check out their website for what attracts you.

A big fire has destroyed this place. It will be closed for a while. Definitely call or otherwise investigate before planning a trip.

I have been to the plateau a few times and I really enjoy it. There are a ton of trails that are easy walks and a few that have some obstacles but even the least experienced joker can enjoy it. The views are spectacular. The cost to use most of the trails is $4 per person and before you ask why remember that the trails are well taken care of and safe. I am planning to return after summer and I will look for the trails that allow dogs since most do not.
