Nice park! Trails are well maintained, but follow the numbered posts on the Rockshelter Trail closely, or you may accidently get off the trail.

Beautiful area- I noticed there were were no signs saying bicycling was not permitted si had a great time riding my bike gently- and it is my firm belief gentle bike riding can leave even less trace than gentle hiker boots and dog tracks. After going back for a few years now, I only notice hiking boots imprints and dog tracks on trails; whereas I see no evidence of my gentle biking . I noticed signs saying don't drink the water in the public restroom sinks. Why is that? Has there been illegal toxic waste dumped at this site in the past?
