Hardly and plants, lots of "construction" it's mostly dirt. Save yourself the money and go on one of the hiking trails, way more fun, beautiful, more plants and more of everything. I wasted a lot of money here. It sucked.

If you have a 4x4, this will be your ideal vehicle for arriving at this property. Once inside, keep in mind the long winter delays the typical spring/summer flowers that you might see in other parts of the country.
