There are miles of hiking trails here and some with elevation. Come prepared to spend 2 - 3 hours hiking for best enjoyment. Bring water and good shoes, and take the map offered at the visitors center.

Some of the information in other reviews is incorrect. There are no outhouses that I know of! Indoor restrooms are in the main building and other buildings as well. Dogs are not allowed off-leash and this is strictly enforced. This is a large Nature Preserve...More

I really enjoy hiking at this park. There are several trails of varying difficulty, and something for everyone. I'm a bit directionally challenged though and have taken several incorrect turns. I would welcome additional, more clear signage.

A few of the trails are but not all, make sure you ask someone if you're not sure which ones to take. They will give you a map at the gate.
