It is a beautiful walk through mixed forest and meadow with views of the mountains across Kachemak Bay. In summer, the highlight is fields of wildflowers, especially from June through August.  There is usually a flower guide at the trailhead that can be borrowed and then returned for the next hiker.  There are several interpretive panels in the park. There are two picnic tables including one at the viewing platform that offers a stunning view and is a perfect spot for lunch. Dogs are allowed on leash.
