“The garden of eden, on ice.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

We absolutely love to hike here, especially after the first frost and the first snow. The groundis hard, less chance of seeing hungry bears (just sluggish, tired bears) and so many choices and trails. Trails are mapped and well marked and many people are out walking about on the weekend and it is very safe. There is ample parking and lots of trails lead into and out of the area from other parts of the city. This is why we love to live in town, because 5 minutes away is wilderness. The biouvac area is our favorite.

“Great Park”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2012

Great park. Trails are pretty good, keep an eye out for moose, coyote, & bears. Stay away from Campbell Creek during salmon season, unless you want to take a chance an stumble on a bear. I've had more run-in's with moose than anything else.

DO NOT LEAVE ANYTHING IN YOUR VEHICLE. At any of the Hillside parking lots.
