About This Park

The spectacular views of the city make up for any deficits in the trail. The first section of the trail from the entrance off highway 16 to the first wood viewpoint could be done by some wheelchair users with the caveat that they will want to be prepared for the steep slopes. The trail is on the side of a river bank so it is subject to erosion at any time. There is also the chance of seeing wildlife such as moose or bears. It is best to hike this trail with someone for all of the above reasons.
