A few surprises

The paved trails are popular with joggers, but don't provide much in the way of hiking.

Hiked all of the trails, doubling back on some. The paved trails are easy and popular with joggers and walkers. The natural surface trails were rougher than I expected, particularly on the west and north side of the park. No complaints here! If you stick to the paved trails the difficulty rating is closer to a 1.

The biggest surprise was the Christian rock concert on Sunday morning that took place near the parking lot! Thankfully the sound did not travel too well into the back of the park. Don't expect too much solitude on a nice day like it was today.
