Beautiful network of forest trails. Well worth going to for a short hike. Be sure to pick up a map as there are many trails, and many ways to go.

Beautiful early morning walk, we got there before the crowds and thoroughly enjoyed the trails we went on. We spent 1.5 hrs here but could have easily sent the whole day exploring. Trails are well maintained, not to hard. We had our young kids with...More
