  • Loved the trails, very easy to mild terrain, pretty woods and swamps everywhere. Parking is a bit small, and there are no bathrooms, so come prepared. Would love to come back.
  • One of the better parks I've ever been to, but with all dog parks it's the type people that visit there that really make. 5 stars for being such a beautiful place -1 star for terrible dog owners that take the park for granted and feel the rules do not apply to them.
  • Beautiful sight were you can find yourself in a relax state of mine even when things may look screwed up
  • Wonderful place to walk with nice views and sometimes animals to observe.
  • Bring bug spray!!!!! Never been bit so many times in my life. But the trails are nice.
