I’m new to town and I had heard lots of positive feedback about the park . It’s not that bad but I wasn’t impress to go back. I’m more into parks that have more large trees and less dry areas. I found this park too...More

If you can catch this hike to the meadow summit view point you will not regret it. Plenty of parking is available at the main entrance to the trails. There are bathrooms as well. There were no paper maps of the trails available so I...More

Beautiful park with many well marked trails. Clean, well maintained, and moderately trafficked on a Sunday evening. I hiked about 3 miles, met several friendly people (but not so many as to detract from quiet enjoyment). Forests, prairies, mountain views, this park has it all....More
