Trails clearly marked while hiking but they would do well to actually add trail boards that mark where hikers are so that people could orientate themselves. These boards can contain distance information to particular markers as well. As a place to have a picnic it is not ideal. The location for picnic has no covering for the elements and just looks run down. Furthermore, the park would do well to actually clearly mark entrances for trails.
