Miles Hiked: 4.00 Miles  Elapsed Time: 2 hours, 14 minutes

Comments: We started from the big parking lot and after looking at the map they have posted there we set out to make the biggest loop in the park that we could. We started out going south, crossed the creek, and then gradually went up hill. Going down the hill on the north side was pretty steep. If I did this again I'd start out going north and loop the other direction. When we got to the preserve we went in. There wasn't anything super exciting up there. It was nice though since we did not see a single other person. After maybe a mile or so that trail forked and that's when we turned around.
