My friends and I often hike in the various local parks. We are grateful that they are there for us to enjoy. We cannot get enough parks.

The valley extends in the north-to-south direction, where the head of the valley is located at the northern end,... More

For people interested in plants this one is a must. On the other side of Huckleberry is Redwood, my favorite park. If you want a cool, shady hike take Stream trail and enjoy... More

The community has helped preserve open space in a large number of parks in the area. Lakes, hills, vistas, horse trails, bike trails, and plenty of gorgeous hiking venues.
