Went hiking there on Friday, July 5th. The hike itself was not strenuous and there was no one else on the trail. However, the flies/mosquitoes were horrible. As soon as we hiked past the kayak/canoe launch, they were non-stop. Spraying my arms and legs only kept them off those parts of my body. The rest was fair game. It was only after I had returned past the canoe/kayak launch did they seem to leave me alone. Recommend, that if you want to hike, go in the cooler weather.
