The trailhead parking area was originally designed to welcome a variety of recreational user groups and accommodate both passenger vehicles and horse trailers. However, the area's rising popularity often means a full parking lot, and during peak times it can become difficult or impossible to park or maneuver a horse trailer. To address the increasing demands, a new passenger vehicle lot is planned for the area west of the existing lot. Once the new lot is completed, the existing gravel lot is expected to primarily serve vehicles towing horse trailers and as an overflow lot when necessary.
