There are a couple of short hikes/lookout areas in the park, easy enough for most all abilities. The overlook is pretty neat, but the more natural trail that takes you out onto the bluffs is really amazing. The trees along this hike have the most...More

It's a great setting for a dog. There are no signs banning their entry and no rangers or sheriff's deputies in the area.
