Comments: Park claims 20 miles of perimeter trails. Nice country with some gullies and water crossings. Trail follows road for a mile or so off and on. One could begin at north end, walk about half, camp in the campground and then walk the rest to make a true backpack experience (easy reload of water). I really liked the parks beauty, foilage and terrain.
