It was a nice trekking but not really a hike - we only did the Gorman Trail so we didn’t really see most of the trail. Wish had more time to do it. Love to see the cows and bulls.

It is a very beautiful park full of hikes. I want to return and explore it more. In the summer, it gets very hot during day. I would recommend a visit in out of the summer time if you are planning to do long hikes. The park also have great springs that are so refreshing. I really enjoyed relaxing there. As I went on a summer day, I spent most of my time in the springs section. Wildlife can also be seen in the park.
Park is beautiful. Staff is very helpful. We did the easy trails first but they proved a little flat although beautiful. We did the Gorman falls trails and it was lovely. I liked the challenge and length of it. Our kids 10/15 loved it too. We went in cold weather and fared well with just one bottle water each but if it’s hot definitely take more water and some snacks maybe to eat while enjoying the views at the falls.
