- There is evidence of the prior use of this land - some old cattle chutes and farm / ranch structures.
- Windy Hill gets windy - great for kites and gliding!

- Stay on the trails to avoid ticks and poison oak!
- Trails get muddy in the winter - avoid them after heavy rains.
This park has parking and bathroom facilities for handicapped people. Fire-road-width trails may be suitable for wheelchairs, but Betsy Crowder trail is too narrow and rutted for them, so no loop is possible for wheelchairs. Meadow Trail and Spring Ridge Trail (the lower part up to Betsy Crowder Trail) look reasonable for wheelchair access (has not been attempted), but all other trails are too narrow, steep, or rutted / muddy.
