The hike through the northwest end of the park is nice and secluded. After you hike past the firing range to the west, the back end of the park is very nice. We stayed on the trail which headed north, then east and then back south along the western edge of the lake. At the extreme southern end of the lake the trail rises 300 vertical feet in the space of 200 yards. Climbing the switchbacks is fun and a bit challenging. If you don't get to the western parking lot early in the day then the horse trailers can take up a lot of space and you have no where to park. No water in the back part of the park, so bring water with you.
