We hiked the trail with the most elevation. If I'm not mistaken, it's aboit 1.7 miles each way. Worth every step to reach the river at the bottom. The park is clean, parking wasn't a big deal to find, although you do have to pay to park. So bring cash!
Nice place to visit. You can swim in summer time. Few nice hiking trails.
It's a gorgeous place with a good atmosphere. Everybody was friendly and respectful. There are free dogs playing with other dogs and humans. It is important to make sure if you bring your dog that it is friendly with other 4 leg buddies. It is clothing optional so make sure you bring an open mind regarding nudity ;)
I love walking around here both in the summer and in the winter, this place truly inspires my creativity, and helps my minds's vision.
Just go here. It's worth the time. Wonderful streams and gorgeous nature.
