It was a good place to go for a day hike. You get to experience a walk on the woods without going to far away from civilzation. It is not a strenous hike either.

Great trail for snowshoeing. Only one other person on the trail today. Looking forward to seeing it in the summer.

This is a nature sanctuary first and foremost and its spartan visitor facilities reflect that purpose. Access is by a short dirt road. Parking is on a hardpan gravel lot. Public use is free. A few picnic tables are located nearby. A trailhead box may...More

We were looking forward to a nice hike around the sanctuary. Unfortunately, it seems so few people visit, the trails are mostly grown over, with vines, sticker branches and poison ivy everywhere. We hike so we are not babies. This place could be really nice...More
