This hike was a truly fine day for myself my girlfriend and our 5 children. Starting about noon, we headed into the trail head and noticed the old zoo right away. Of course we couldn't pass up climbing about the old cages and dried up water features.
The hike to Bee Rock itsself was minor to moderate in places. The trail seems to split up in serveral places and can get you into some tricky spots if you take the wrong one; however, all trails lead to the top, so no worries.
Make sure to take lunch and enjoy it at the top, it's quite fun. On your way back you can make a bee-line down to the park play structures and bathrooms by taking the old zoo main road that ends where the trail head up the mountain starts. All in all, we all had a wonderful day with this hike, we all recommend it highly.
