    Some trails -- everything is unmarked -- end with a fence. Please, park rangers, can't you put signage at the other end to say a trail is closed?

    If you go in the summer, BRING WATER! Like, WAY more than you think you'll need. I'm a seasoned hiker/athlete and the heat combined with virtually zero shade were too much for me!
