Temp started at 70, ended at 95.  Sunny with light, steady breeze.

Slow and easy hike along dry, easy to traverse trails.  Deer were out as were some birds but nothing spectacular.  Lots of green vegetation still but no wildflowers to speak of although there were a few sunflowers out. 


Water, shade, info kiosk, bicycle repair station and toilets at Playground parking area.

Water and shade at various campsites parallel to Roadrunner Loop.  A toilet is available at the mid-point.
