Beautiful scenery, trails, ponds and fields which are all a part of the Audubon system of trails..Self-guided walks which compliment tours given by Audubon Leaders.

Beautiful Wildlife Sanctuary! Easy to walk and navigate with teens. Very picturesque it feels like you're in another world. My family and I enjoyed it so much and walk on a beautiful day with no humidity..

Good views and well maintained. I believe this place is just another of the many politically correct areas where the politics spoil the experience. But to those who like a nice walk, it is nice. On the more positive side there are fields and meadows right off the main trails where you may believe that this is a special place.Compared... More

A beautifully maintained natural sanctuary for local wildlife. Have been here several times. Have seen all kinds of wildlife, including beavers and otters!

Great place to check out trails, animals, birds, trees, beautiful nature at it's best. If you'd like to go bring a snack and some water and hit the trails and go for a nice walk and enjoy some nature. Been going since I was a kid..

Having had a couple of excellent trips to Pleasant Valley we thought we would try another reserve but we were sadly disappointed on 3 counts: 1. Although there are some way markings, no distances are mentioned either on the information board at the car park or path signs. 2. A lot of the paths are very overgrown. This would not... More

Gentile trails through varied terrain make for a leisurely and lovely afternoon. Fine for seniors in good shape - not too many seating spots. Not overbuilt at all, truly a wildlife sanctuary. Be sure to wear insect repellant in season - our family fondly calls this "bug meadows".

Wonderful selection of interconnected trails with many wildlife viewing opportunities. Most of the trails are relatively easy for hiking.

Just want to get outside for a little fresh air and nature? This is a good place to go, especially if you've got young'uns with you who aren't yet up for serious hiking, or elderly folk who can no longer handle anything super-strenuous. It's also one of the better options for late fall/early winter and late winter/early spring. There are... More

We love this wildlife sanctuary which actually abuts our home on the opposite side! Trails are mostly flat making it a great choice for little ones and grandparents and everyone in-between. There is no attended building so admission is free (donations accepted on the honor system.) If you turn right along the Sacred Way Trail, and keep bearing right along... More
