    I do NOT recommend the full loop for a hot day. The short up and back is fine and in the shade (people were splashing in the creek along the trail). But, the full loop of the park is dry and dusty and HOT with little shade on a summer day. Also - the trail is also used for group horse tours of the ranch - watch for droppings - they are numerous! I did however like the full loop, but will save it for fall/winter when the mountains are too cold.
