My son and I did a ten mile hike on the Cedar Brake Outer Loop Trail. While the dinosaur tracks were under water and we couldn't see them the park was beutiful. The hiking trails were mostly well marked and laid out.

I would definitely recommend some sort of river sandal or shoe for the rocks. We were unprepared the day we went and had on tennis shoes.
