“Perfect place to go with children and walking shoes”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 10, 2012

We stay really close to the Highlands Biological Station, etc. Every chance that I get I walk around the lake and enjoy a quick mountain fix in Highlands. When I go I can see what is in bloom, enjoy the water lilies on the lake, and read the labels to learn the names of unfamiliar plants.
