Trails are well marked. Terrain is reasonable. Setting is very pretty. Great nature center with helpful staff. Clean restrooms. People need to obey leash rules for their dogs however. I guess some people do not think rules apply to them, sadly.

A state park in the middle of the city: an amazing find. There are many trails to wander about; half the fun is getting "lost" and then picking up the trail again later on. Some of the trails are equestrian trails, so you do have...More

Can't believe I've lived here so long and haven't hiked here before! Feels like you're miles from home, out in nature. Trails, streams, wooden bridges, gorgeous moss covered trees. Didn't get to the nature center...saving that for another day!!! Can't wait!!
