Did this park in 2 trips. It's not a long trail, Dad and I were just not in the best of moods in when we started the trail because of our sick doggy at home. Plus, the mosquitoes were horrendous, so we gave up 1/2 way. We returned 1.5 years to finish it. Way less buggy, but did come home with 3 ticks.
