What a quaint and peaceful place, until you have lots of fun dogs running at you to greet you as you find you way to the dog park/pond near the chapel. Great place to check out. Left a message for my dog that has passed.

There’s no fenced in areas at the mountain. It is all kind of surrounded by thick trees and bushes that sort of act like a fences at the edges of the fields, but there are no actual fences.
