I looked forward to visiting this Audobon Sanctuary and was not disappointed. There are great hiking trails, some requiring scrambling and nice photo opportunities. We saw a Muskrat swimming on a pond and lots of interesting wild mushrooms. The admission fee for seniors is $3.00, a bargain.

This is nice place for a few hours for families with small children, and/or people looking for a pleasant walk. While the trails are not rigorous, you can spend a morning or afternoon here and have a picnic.

My mom and I hiked the trail all the way to the top of the mountain with 3 young children. Once we got to the top we couldn't believe the view. We will hike again.

We really enjoyed our walk ! We were lucky to see beavers, and we also saw many beautiful birds. And it was a very peaceful walk. We found it just a little bit expensive for a walk.

This park is great because it has a nice variety of trails. There are easy walkways as well as strenuous inclines. There are many paths to take so you can vary the level of hike as you wish. Along all the trails are great markings that signal blue as up the mountain and yellow as down. This was easy to... More
