Comments: We combined the White, Orange, and Green trails for an enjoyable hike. Crossing the river on the east side of the park was a bit troublesome. It probably would have been better to simply wade than use the slippery stepping stones, many of which were submerged. The trails don't always match the official park map, but that posed no problem. At major trail junctions, there are "You are here" maps that clearly indicate current location. Although we did not encounter another sole on our hike until we emerged at the tracks on the west side of the park, we could hear cars throughout much of the hike. This is definitely a park we will return to, though.
