The Bluff Trail at this park was a very scenic hike.  In addition to geocaches and earthcaches in the park, there was a number of trails.  I’ve indicated the Bluff Trail as being easy, but the initial incline from the upper parking lot was a fairly steep one.  There was also several points of the Bluff Trail that were muddy so be prepared for that.  Although the trail is well marked, there are sections that come very close to the edge of the bluff so be alert.  The remaining trails are very easy.  In addition, even though I have not indicated this as a bike trail, we saw many bikers around the entrance of the park.  It looked like a very popular biking area.
