Incredibly well kept and clean, plenty of areas to see and options from easy to slightly moderate. Just a great area for an easy day of walking, or, better a six or seven mile run on a path.

Seems like a great way to enjoy the family. No fee to get in and pack a lunch and make a day out of it! Very quaint little spot you don't expect

Always enjoy this place when in the area. Love the many cascades and creeks in the area. The trails you hike are very well maintained as well. Definetely a good way to spend some time. You wont be disappointed.
