PARKING is at Will Rodgers State Park...

there is also a SMALL overflow parking just outside the park

Overflow parking outside the park is VERY limited... so expect to park IN the park... it's $12 now (we're helping keep our State Parks open!!!)

The rains wore away part of the trail, and the brush is somewhat overgrown in places. It's VERY do-able, and actually MORE SCENIC than I remember (see photos / link below) but I'd have to give it a semi-easy / ranging to moderate and slightly difficult in a couple places rating
