  • Love bringing my dog to the off leash walking trail. Some people keep their pups on a lease (makes leashed dogs defensive) when my big girl (shepherd/husky) wants to go check them out. I can call her back though. So it's a good idea to bring your dog here and not allow them to approach leashed dogs. It's a beautiful 15 minute slow walk. I usually turn around and go back to make it a longer walk for my girl. We love it. Careful on super windy days, trees tend to fall over the trail.
  • Lots of beautiful natural secenery.Im sure that everyone will love here.
  • Amazing trails, you can find amythest all over the park in a variety of sizes and enjoy the sound of the river.
  • Great trails for hiking and biking. Varying lengths and levels of difficulty
  • Great walking trails, relaxing atmosphere in city limits
