There are several well-groomed and well-marked trails of varying lengths, all of which offer an informative series of plaques identifying the plants and historical sites and explaining their significance. It's a great place to have fun with kids and learn something at the same time. It's also visually stunning, a lovely setting for a picnic or barbeque. Because it's nuzzled up against the east face of the organ mountains it can be anything from chilly to freezing before the sun comes over the mountains, so bring appropriate clothing if you'll be visiting before lunch.
