This is a very pleasant hike in the sun. There is only one hill and it is just before Borges, where we will rest and snack. We return a different way, so no more big hills. We hike on fireroads all the way. This park is dog friendly, so bring them. They are even allowed off leash, although they might have to be leashed at Borges because their animals roam the property at times. Borges is a fantastic place to visit.Contact: Andrew Kincaid
