The full loop (about 8 miles) is great. Be sure to stop at Wolf Rock and do some rock scrambling. Could be a bit dangerous at Wolf Rock for kids who have no fear. Overlooks are beautiful and you will never be bored with the rocky trail. The visitors center was recently renovated and is a great place to explore the rich history of this park.
Love to come here ever fall, but this is an awesome place no matter what time of the year with so much to see and do locally. The Park has a variety of trails from easy to difficult, pick up your free must have map at the park office. Great picnic areas. Local orchards, wineries, antiques, fairs, wildlife centers, so much more and even a beach. Come on out, explore the back roads, you won't be disappointed
