Beautiful area. Good area to drive and enjoy the country side. If you want to hike around the site the trails are short and easy. Would recommend for casual outing.

Small but informative interpretive center, knowledgeable staff, nice hiking trail and picnic areas, and it's FREE. Great place for small kids or a school group.
