Great place to take your family for a walk. There was a lot of trails that you can travel. It's also pet friendly which is a bonus.

If you're looking for a true nature walk this is the place to go. Natural terrain, and trails that go over hill and dale. Wear comfortable shoes suitable for hiking. I hear there's geocaching in this area, too.

Great trails for walking. We met few people on the trails on a school day, just another couple and some dog walkers with dogs off leash According to my iPhone step counter all trails were 17,000+ steps (12km)
