  • Beautiful place to hike. I’ve been here twice and it is always a joy. Short and long trails, creeks, and a lake view.
  • Many nice forested trails to hike, both flat out hilly. A pond for dogs to play in.
  • Very easy hiking trails. Lots of beautiful views of you take the Banzai trail. The Section 36 and Powder House trails have gorgeous views as well. Not many people in the summer time.
  • Great place to take a nature walk. Up and down grades, a pond, and a great practice course for timber sports!
  • Love this area. In 2 days ive done 26 miles of roads and trails
