“A shady, cool run for a warm summer day.”— Bruce Hope
The trails are open year-round but can get muddy (or snowy) in places during the winter.
The trails are used by hikers, mountain bikers, and equestrians, so please observe proper trail etiquette. A few trails are reserved for mountain biking (these are usually signed as such), so please don’t hike on these.
There are no potable water sources in the park or along the trails – be sure to bring plenty of your own.
Note that just below Parking Area P-7, the bike-only Twister Trail goes to the left, while the hiker-only Shade Creek Trail turns sharply right down two switchbacks to the creek.
