Amazing trail! A little bit of everything and so much beauty. We went in the opposite direction and was still amazing. Parking is $10 now but worth every penny.

The route described here is a great samper of the beauty and terrain of Wilder Ranch, but there are several other trails in the park that deserve to be explored, and there are an incredible number of loops that can be created using some of these additional trails.
