Location: Dinosaur Valley State Park

Rating: 4stars
Difficulty: 3stars  Solitude: 3stars
Miles Hiked: 4.50 Miles  Elapsed Time: 4 minutes


We started with the white trail and finished with a wide loop of the green and blue trails.  We saw almost no one until the second river crossing when we ran into a couple hundred people playing in and around the river.  There was lots of great scenery from pristine dinosaur footprints to some pretty great views from the top of the green trail overlooking the valley.  The trail was not too difficult, but it hit 105 degrees, so it became much more difficult than it normally would have been. 

I will definitely do this hike again when it is a little cooler.
