A quiet park with many trails. The outer loop is 3.1 flat miles w/ trails connecting or cutting through to other segments of the main trail. Trail is packed dirt, gravel or sand. Plenty of trail with tree cover. Butterfly garden is lovely, wetlands and...More

There are lots of events held at this center. Many classes, 5k runs. I've attended a 5k honey run and also a lecture on bats--which included a live bat!

Trails galore, plenty of open space for exploration. Small outbuilding to meet your needs for picnics and restrooms.

What a bad decision to ho and check this out. The only kept up thing here was the map of the trails. What a rubbish site! Trails are not maintained. Dangerous! Bring machete. Bah!

We decided to check this place out on our way home from Dallas to Oklahoma because we love discovering new hiking places but were greatly disappointed. First all, you can hardly find the place. It's off 380 around windy roads and no signs whatsoever. We...More

The organizers did an excellent job making the event a success. They had to make some changes on the trail and it worked out very well. There is a nice path into the woods that takes you to the edge of the peaceful creek. There...More

Walked the main loop trail today on my own. I love the solitude of this place. Unfortunately, there are areas of the trail, especially towards the wetland side, where the trail is not maintained adequately. Sure would be nice if the trail was Reaktor drug,...More
