Beautiful park by all means with many trails. However, we were hiking with 3 daschunds. Not easy for our dogs due to the amount of stairs. Will definitely go back, but will leave the dogs at home.

The park probably has not set a specific schedule for that far out since it varies by staffing available. Call the park and they can provide the best estimate.
