What to know
This easy trail begins at the Visitor Center, on the east side. Parking is on the west side of the building. It is wheelchair accessible and meets ADA requirements. The trail has two different loops; an inner concrete surfaced quarter mile section, and an outer "challenge" loop which is concrete surfaced and one half mile around. Wayside panels inform visitors about the plants, animals, and geology of the area. An enlarged overlook area provides a view of a narrow hollow with a small spring and pools of water where wild critters come to drink. The trail winds around and through large pine and oak trees, and forest floor covered with various understory plants and wildflowers.
