Lots of trails to fit different physical levels. Some are more shaded than others. The park opens 15 min before sunrise, and many cars already line up outside. The parking is a serious issue after 9 am.

I hike the trails often. For a close-in park it is well maintained and has variety. There are a number of 2 through 6 mile hikes and a couple of 10 mile ones.

Hiked to the top with my family. The view was great. The parking is awful on the weekend or holidays.

We love this place, great walks and even a little farm my son love to look at all of their animals. There are plenty of wild animals too, so keep scanning all around you.

A moderate level hike through a few hills. Doesn't get too steep but you'll be going up quite a bit (and then down). There isn't a ton of tree coverage so bring your sunscreen and avoid during the summer.

The last time I was in the park they were allowed, they of course must be leashed.
