I have been lost in these woods and don't recommend at this time because bridges are out and paths are not taken care of at this time. I know they are working on it. Also, the park visitors don't follow the rules about keeping dogs on a leash!!!

Very uncrowded which makes for a nice hike or bike ride through the preserve. Rarely see people here after parking off of Flintridge. Got lost in the bike maze one time that almost led to darkness without a light.

The park is beautiful,the bike trails are fun, but I've also experienced unleashed dogs. They actually chased after me on my bike as well and I had to kick one of them.

I was on my bike and encountered 2 wonderful dog owners that evidently thought they owned they owned the place because their dogs were unleashed - guess I need to start carrying my mace...just in case! Also - why are dogs even allowed here - take them to the million dollar dog parks they built in the Woodlands! I don't... More

I live within walking distance to the preserve and go there almost daily, and I would just like to say that I have never experienced an aggressive dog, or an "inconsiderate" dog walker. It's the woods, dogs like the woods. People bike on the pedestrian trails quite often, I guess that is also inconsiderate. There are lots of small divergent... More

Still enjoying the trails, both biking and running. Inconsiderate dog walkers are becoming an issue. For the safety of every person and animal, dogs must be on leashes. It is a shame that some people are potentially ruining this park for others. Hopefully signs will be posted soon reminding everyone about both this courtesy and law.

My children brought me here thinking I would enjoy this since I was visiting from Sedona AZ area. This trail was much like the beginning of the trail to Cathedrals, which I go to often. This was so spirit lifting as I always find in nature. Well kept & still color changes seen (after Thanksgiving).

The Preserve is a great walk through the woods. It is an easy walk, jog or bike on a dirt trail. A quick nature fix if you live in the area.
