7.6 mile hike but I got lost (probably on account of the shirtless runner who was quite the distraction), so, I think I did 4 miles.
I like to listen to classical music when I'm hiking. I don't want to hear the sounds in the woods. You know, like what was that sound! What's waiting around the bend? Some hairy thing with fangs and drool? Kind of like things that go bump in the night when you're a little kid and you're scared of what might be under the bed. Then again, being a menopausal woman, I'd now tell the "thing" under the bed that if it knows what's good for it, it better stay under the bed.
I only encountered butterflies and wildflowers on this hike ... oh and the shirtless runner.
I didn't realize that mountain bikers use this park as well. It doesn't seem particularly technical - wide fire access roads without much rock or gravel with steady uphill climbs. A good place for me to start if I ever get a mountain bike.
I plan to return -- there are a lot of junctions in which to select a trail. It is pretty much exposed so a hat and water are a must. Next time, I might try to not get lost. Who am I kidding. Besides, it's fun to lose oneself in beautiful surroundings.
