I lived here for 25 years before I discovered the park. Now I go year around. Don't expect cell service on the trails but you can log some serious hilly miles if you want. Or you can enjoy a leisurly walk on your lunch hour....More

It's a fun place to go and relax and take a walk. One of the better places to have a picnic and/or a family reunion. The Park Ranger is a neat guy, too!!!!
