I've been here a few times with my two young daughters. It is a real easy walk and they really enjoy it. Its is a micro environment like a mini rainforest. Off season, anytime besides the July bloom, it is very quiet.

Larger than I thought it would be. Cool trails. Natural setting. Unfortunately they were not in bloom yet. Nice short hike.
