We had a great day walking the trails, there are many to pick from! The trails were beautiful and well maintained. The small shop and bathrooms were very nice. Definitely a great, free way to get your kids outdoors!

Whatever your age, if you like nature or simply want to take a walk on a beautiful trail, this is a great local spot to venture to. The youth camps they do in the summer are top notch, kids outdoors in nature, what an idea!
