WOW what a day our day started at 5 am we got to the park at 7:30 am we left the park at 5:30 pm

in all we hiked 8 miles we think the map didn't seem portionate in spaces

any way we had a great time especailly when we got to the primitive hike area as the boys said "the spider on the sign wasn't a clue" they were everywhere in the trees in the bushes in the tall grass on your hat in the back pack yikes but that made it fun bryant grab a big stick and took the lead clearing the webs from the trailish we in counter a bug the boys thought was a "katydid" but after looking at it on line thats not it more resaech reguried

 the trail was over grown and if it wasn't for the blue tape we would of gotten lost the trails was not clear seeing how it was a primitative hike but fun

after serval miles we final reached a maintained trail and we all jumped for joy no more spider oh and by the way these spiders were green yellow brown and about a 1/2 inch long yuck

the trail never really got to hard the inclines and desends were very moderate making the diffuclty small  all in all good hike but we will not return for we feel we seen a good part of it but do recomend it
