What a great place to ride your bike, or go for a hike, or even just a walk. Lots of open space, and it leaves you in awe with all the beauty as you look around. Easy to get to this place, and ample parking.

Big parking lot, clean, has restrooms for the humans, a gated part for smaller dogs, and a creek that runs through it for water fun!

We visited over Veteran's Day weekend so the visitor center was closed, but we enjoyed the loop trails. You can choose the length you want. Many beautiful birds along the trails and creeks!

Lovely area for a walk or hike. The section we walked was well maintained and very beautiful. The woman in the visitors center was also very friendly. A nice way to spend the afternoon when the weather is nice!
