It is nice that the reserve is available for taking a short hike. It is basic, no amenities, the trails are marked. With the growth and development in the area, places like this will have increasing importance.

The Nature preserve has paths but you have to be careful to avoid deeper puddles and boggy areas after rain. Mosquito repellent is essential! The walk around the Preserve took about an hour
