  • Love hiking here in nature. Cooler in the summer and can really get your heart going if you keep up the pace. Only wish it would open before 9AM  more »

  • This is a great forest and park for hiking, trail running, mountain biking, and walking your dog. The trails are well maintained and the area is beautiful. I was concerned because the reviews said the trails were not marked well. I've had no problem with markings on the main trails as they are obvious and on google maps if you peak at your "location enabled" phone. I cannot speak to the connector trails. I would like to see bathrooms at the outside parking area.
  • Got the 1year pass after the first visit. Great for walks, biking, or bringing your dog. Trails for all ages
  • Great get away from the city. Trails are generally maintained by enthusiasts which makes them really cared for.
  • On 5 May 2015, my friend and I went to the forest to go hiking. One item was quickly identified,....lack of trail identification markers. This was very frustrating. We ran into a woman who agreed with our finding. This is a great resource but could be "outstanding" if you could figure out where you were in the forest!!!
  • Great place with great hiking trails.
