I go there all the time when I need a little nature time. It is close to the main shopping area so access is easy.

Unfortunately, they only have one tour time and that's 10 am. We missed it, and couldn't go back to see it again. Will try another time. Trails are well kept and the garden is very nice.

I live thirty minutes from Dunbar Cave and have driven quite a few times to enjoy the hiking trails and the lake. I am told that guided cave tours will begin soon. I enjoy the place but it's not somewhere you would spend more than an hour or two.

Its a great spot to go after school to be outdoors and enjoy the fresh air and wild life. The trails are easy and is exactly what you need to get you through the week. You can visit anytime and its pretty...love the wildlife.

Nice place for a quick day hike. There are two primary trails that offer a good work out, especially if you are not used to inclines. It can get a little busy at times and becomes unenjoyable when all you hear are people yelling into their cell phones.

Lake is dried up due to a leak and cave is permanently closed due to bat disease. However, nice nature trails and you can see outside of cave, kind of neat. we still like to visit here anyway and we took our dog for a nice walk here.

We spent two hours two days in a row here. So pretty. We loved the great hiking trails. Got to see lots of wildlife. If you can hike I recommend taking the time to walk the trails. The beauty of the cave was amazing to look at. Io bad no one can go inside anymore.

Great trail for enjoying nature. We always have fun on our walk. Fishing, hiking, and animal spotting all available. Cave is closed due to bat disease but still enjoyable.

We went with our 3 yr old it was a neat place but there wasn't a lot to see since the cave was closed. Glad we got to see it anyway.
