Great historical site with historical markers/boards detailing events in history and specific areas of this old fort (i.e. community garden, flour mill, sudsville, etc.). The trail is mostly rocky and flat with a few slight inclines in stair-step fashion. We hiked the multi-use trail that follows the Lost Creek and Lost Creek Reservoir. This trail leads to the other side of the reservoir to a picnic area. Along the way, we saw a flock of golden eagles flying at tree top level and 3 wild turkeys. We were told we might see deers along the way.... sadly, we did not.
Lost creek trail has some overhanging boulders, nice trail with nice scenery of the creek bottom. Rumbling Spring same kind of scenery on the other side of creek but the trail is rocky in places. Drought dried up creek though. I would give these trails higher ratings if the creek flowed. Walked up on some does along prickly pear trail toward back of park.
