Need to Know

Park is open dusk to dawn.

Description

Well-maintained, clear trail through trees with very few open spots and rocky in places. Some views of limestone formations and pink granite rock, which is odd for the area. The trail is not clearly marked with many signs, but it is well-worn, and most of it appeared to be recently weed-whacked.

Flora & Fauna

No animals seen when we were there, but I would expect normal wildlife for the area.
