I enjoy taking my dogs here to walk the trails. During the work week you can walk the mile and 1/2 trail without running into anyone. It's very quiet and peaceful!!

get your steps in and enjoy nature! See the caves, as well as animal foot prints, and many rock formations. Devils icebox is amazing> lots of trees, wear a hat, and bring drinks! But.. its free!!

Plenty of birds were about on a spring day. An excellent place to hike around. The Gans Creek section was particularly nice. Watch for a little mud and keep your balance crossing the creeks!

There are campgrounds in the Columbia area but none in the immediate vicinity of RBSP.
