This place was great for nature lovers. There are so many paths to go on and endless routes. There was so much wildlife to see and lots of shade. Lots of photography opportunities.

This is one of my favorite places to hike; nice challenges mixed in with scenic spots, wildlife, a creek ruining through the whole area, and an outdoor amphitheater with great music, what more do you need?

Coffee Creek Watershed is one of my favorite places to go for a quiet walk or to chill out by the fountain and do some outdoor yoga!

this is not my top pick of places to walk or hike in the area, but I do go here if I don't want to get muddy walking in trails as you can be on pavement or a boardwalk, good place to take my nephew for a walk and pull him in a wagon and for him to get out... More

There are a number of differetnn walking trails that meander through this area, some short and easy, others a bit longer. Take a bottle of water on a hot day and enjoy the scents and sounds of the creek as it snakes it way across the property. Dog friendly - be sure to clean up messes - with plastic bag... More
