  • Gorgeous and peaceful. It's a wonderful place to hike, bike jog, walk, take pictures it just enjoy the beauty and history.
  • A magical place! Well worth the $5 entry fee.
  • Lovely place to hike or bike anytime! You get to see natures beauty everywhere you walk....enjoy a peaceful spot to picnic,read or just relax. Sorry to see some trees had to be taken down ....it added to the cozy, privacy of Shaw. Now you have noise of traffic more...but it's still a nice place to visit.
  • I love all things nature the reason they didn't get a five-star is when they gave me instructions on how to get to where the Crawfish class was he says go through the gate go right and go right if you go through the gate and go right and go right you wind up on a dead-end road that takes you into the parking lot of the gas station he failed to mention that there is for rights before you take the next right I drove around in circles I did have a wonderful time and I learned quite a bit at the Crawfish class by the conservation department .streamteam Skeets dream 5615 .
  • This is a great place to hike, unwind, and see nature. Every season gives it a different look.
