  • This area has a very well maintained set of trails and viewpoints that make exploring very easy. Definitely recommend for night viewing as well when shooting astrophotography.
  • Great quick trail! Perfect place for a picnic and some light bouldering.
  • Pack a picnic and come here if you're at the park. Nice little area with some good size rocks.
  • A nice "secluded" spot especially at sunset! A decent location to climb some boulders and see the setting sun from atop the rocks!
  • Good stop in the park
