We visited the forest recently and found it to be very average. The park is very green and well maintained, however most of the region is like that.

Great hiking trails to choose from. We hiked the shy bear which was 6 miles and took 2 hours. My only complaint is that the porta potty's were discussing.

I'm a bit biased because my house practically backs onto the park, but I spend so much time in here running and hiking the trails. They are very well maintained, trees get moved very quickly if they come down in a storm, trails get graded...More

Miles of trails, some leading to waterfalls, missile silos, and historic mining relics. Some animal sightings. Beautiful, easy trails. You'll often find small groups of happy people and their dogs in the parking lot, with lots of cars, on a beautiful day. Get there early....More
