For $20/ person, you get a great tour book with stories and information and a trail that allows you to get lost in nature with breathtaking vistas. I was expecting a nice botanical garden walk and was so amazed how beautiful this preserve was. Be prepared to do a fantastic walk with a bit of an incline.

In addition, the overall setting is nestled into an amazing valley surrounded by almost other-worldly mountain peaks. Plan on a couple of hours and plan on being impressed! Well worth the drive. It's a bit expensive, but keep in mind that proceeds... More
