Backtracking, we then continued along the creek until we reached the Boy Scout Trail crossing. There was no one else on the this trail. Lots of wildflowers, and as we were admiring one, we came upon a large cottonmouth snake in its den. It was happy to let us look (not too closely!).
We then hiked up from the creek and spent a little time in the seven rock formations on the south side of the park before returning to the bear cave and the lodge. It was a nice three-hour hike and could be extended to a full loop around the park, as they have over 20 miles of trails.
