  • I like this park, this is a cool park. My dog gets to go off leash here! Be aware, there is no large area for dogs to run around as the meadow is protected and off limits. But the trails are fun for a walk with the doggo. The tree are pretty, the hills are gorgeous and the river is relaxing. A little slice of almost wild nature.
  • LOVE this park for me and my dogs! I love the sheer amount of mileage and the varied terrain. Gets pretty scenic as well, good views of the surrounding valleys. Your dogs can roam off-leash if you have voice/visual command of them. There are 2 water stations, but they're far apart and a bit of a hike inwards, especially for hot days, so I still recommend bringing your own water for you AND Fido.
  • I have been visiting this special place since i was a girl, oh so many years ago! It holds a dear place in my heart as a beautiful nature preserve with wonderful hiking trails and views. The dogs and children enjoy it so much too. They have a new visitors center with trail information and helpful staff! Enjoy!!
  • Clean, calm and beautiful. The volunteer Steve was very experienced in the trails, Overall a dog friendly outstanding jewel of a park.
  • We did a short hike to visit the waterfall. There are more trails to hike in the area. We visited the nature center, and asked questions about the area. The staff was knowledgeable and pleasant.
