Description

This trail is well maintained and well signed, with the occasional marginally steep section. It offers access to many of the park's other, more difficult trails, and also access to views of historic oil-boom-era ruins.

Flora & Fauna

The first 0.4 miles of this trail are actually a nature trail with several informative signs, so there are plenty of native plants to see here.
