A beautiful place to walk and enjoy nature. The creek is so relaxing to hear as the trails wind past and over it. Watch the salmon run in the fall, or just bring a picnic and enjoy being outside.

I come here often. The trails are well marked and nature can be enjoyed while getting some exercise. This is a dog friendly area as they enjoy a leashed walk with their human.

Even in winter, walking this trail is gorgeous. Wildlife everywhere, and lots of folks (with their dogs) to greet. A totally unexpected find.
