  • While it was nice to climb the tower and survey the area, there were not many birds at this time of year so very little to see,  more »
  • Had an excellent time along the trails. The scenery is beautiful and the wildlife as well. The amount of butterflies was quite remarkable and almost unexpected. Insect spray and long pants is advised (almost required) due to chiggers as I later found out.
  • We love going hiking to this place, great for a family weekend the trails are surrounded with vegetation and many kinds of birds; they have a visitor center with souvenirs, pick nick area, and also they have a trip on a wagon that explains the story of the place taking you close to the Rio Grand and cemetery from the 1800's. There's a high tower in the center of the park where you can appreciate an awesome view.
  • Alot of Mosquito's better in fall not summer 😧 but everything else was awesome
  • Despite living in a hot area, I enjoy traversing the trails here.
  • The whole place needs to be burned to the ground, it is infested with chiggers and extremely small ticks. Enjoy chigger bites & ticks covering your body after you go, and spreading them to your bedding, family members, and pets.
