Description

The paved path starts near the northeast corner of the parking lot next to a sign that carefully maps where all interpretive signs, benches, picnic tables, and bathrooms are. A few foot spur to the left has the first viewpoint and interpretive signs.

It continues gently downhill to a split near the accessible bathrooms. Take the left to continue past more views and signs. There are more spurs along the way that lead to picnic tables. Benches are provided along the way to help make the uphill easier.
