“Happy Trails!”
Reviewed March 23, 2013

We love this regional park and always do a hike there on vacation. Why...

1) Great selection of trails for various levels.
2) Trails maps provided and trails marked
3) Lots of parking
4) Clean restrooms with running water
5) Entrance fee is $6 and all monies goes to the park
6) Covered picnic tables and a covered play area for kids
7) Not overly crowded
8) We did the Quartz trail which is fairly new....about a 4 mile RT loop
9) This year the wild flowers were spectacular
10) Depending on where you are staying this park might be a drive to get to, but it's easy to find and worth the trip

“Cool new visitor center, great trails”
Reviewed March 21, 2013

Once a month you get to watch a ranger feed the snakes!!! Go John trail is 4 odd miles of beauty and varied terrain. Kids love the playground. We want to try a trail ride at some point.

“Great guided tours”
Reviewed March 21, 2013

Thursday morning guided trail walk was very enjoyable. Saw spring flowers throughout and great vistas in this underrated park.
The ranger was very knowledgeable about the areas and trails, and the group kept a nice pace, where everyone was close. The hike was about 90 minutes and range from easy to easy/moderate.

“Always a pleasure”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

Trails are in good shape and there are a variety of length and difficulties. The map is pretty accurate. Good parking at the trailhead. Lots of picnic tables and grills but only a few with covers. The visitors center doesn't offer much but does have some cute tee shirts.

“Informative Nature Center Volunteer”
Reviewed March 11, 2013

We took a hike here in March and were very happy with our experience. The volunteer in the visitor center went above and beyond in suggesting which routes to hike and what to look for. Friendly people on the trail, well marked, beautiful and $6 for parking is a steal. We will be back.
