This quiet, out of the way canyon is a perfect place for a casual family hike or short outing. It's a paradise for birders, with a real variety of common and not so common birds (depending on the time of year). Other animals abound. In our late April visit, three deer walked casually around us to get to better grazing, a turkey made a big fuss, several monarch butterflies explored around us, along with other moths and butterflies, and squirrels and birds galore scolded us. We enjoyed the easy hike through pines with their bright green new growth, enormous old sycamore trees, and many other varieties. The small canyon is quiet and peaceful, with a burbling stream down the middle. The visitors' center is manned with cheerful and helpful staff. However, it's closed on Tuesdays and Wednesdays.
