After 4 or 5 years of trying, we finally did our "loop". In the past we always got rained out. Wish they had better signage. I always think I'm lost. Great views of White Sands!
This was the first trail that I had ever hiked in my life, and it was a great first experience, years later I still come back to this one. The trails are kept up very nicely and free of any obstruction. The trails themselves are pretty moderate and are pretty straightforward. This is a great trail for those looking for... 更多

The trail is about a 3 mile loop that climbs and descends a beautiful scenery. The trail goes through various terrain including rocky parts and lush, deciduous forests. Perfect for families but if you are planning to hike leisurely and take breaks, best to plan 2 hours to take it all in.
Just strenuous and remote enough to feel like you're actually hiking, but short enough (2.2 miles) and manageble enough with 2 kids (7 and 9). Great views of the Trestle and White Sands.
