Being in the city you would never believe such a great place of nature exists. The guided tours are great.

What there is, is interesting, but there's just not much to it. However, they have had some fun events in the past such as the Halloween Haunted Woods and some Native American events.

The park itself is nice, good trails, nice bridges, etc. The so-called cave leaves a bit to be desired. It is basically a shallow indent in some rocks. The upside was that we got to see multiple deer frolicking about as we strolled the trails.
