Comments: We visited this park on New Year's Day and were surprised how many people had the same idea as us. We set off on the un-paved Yucca Trail and found some challenging portions but they ended far too quickly. When we intersected Hill-view Trail we made our way to the observation tower for a bit of irony, there we were looking to get away and all you can see is San Antonio. Our party enjoyed the mix of challenging sections and the well groomed trails with clearly marked trail markers. The tower offered a nice view and was worth the trek up and "summiting". All in all we enjoyed our three hours at the park and will not hesitate to visit again.
