Know Before You Go

Parking reservations are required on weekends, holidays and other peak days. Permits are not available at the park and must be purchased using our online parking reservation system before your visit. Parking is free all other days. You can reserve a parking spot for all-day-use or half-day. Make a reservation here.

Be sure to bring plenty of drinking water for yourself and your pets, especially during hot temperatures.

Some trails are quite steep, so prepare to visit the park with proper hiking shoes, attire, sunscreen and snacks.

Service for most cell phone carriers is very limited.

During Rain or Inclement Weather

Trails are closed to cyclists and equestrians during and after rain events in order to maintain trail stability, permit drying and minimize soil displacement. Reopening wlll occur as soon as practical, given soil conditions. Notices of trail closure status are posted on our Facebook and Twitter sites daily. Please check for trail closure information prior to heading to the park.
