We took the girls here for some quality family & nature time. Had a great time hiking the trails. We went only @ 3 miles but the terrain was challenging enough for our daughters (aged 5 & 9). Definitely something we want to do again.

Wander on your own or visit the Nature center for DNR folk who provide insights into the local flora and fauna. Close to town but feels like the middle of no where. Great way to get close to nature without going far.
