  • I went here by myself just to relax. Defiantly one of my better trips. Very serene, nice views, lots of small trails well kept. I would give it 4 stars due to the fact that the signs don't make it eas...  more »
  • Beautiful network of forest trails. Well worth going to for a short hike. Be sure to pick up a map as there are many trails, and many ways to go.  more »
  • Cougar mountain was only a few miles down the road so I took a drive early Saturday to the Harvey Manning Trailhead - easy to find following my phone's GPS. Ample parking and a very complete easy to r...  more »

  • Beautiful place that has so many trails. Dog and family friendly. I love that there's informational posts along different routes explaining the history of the ares. Actually hiked down M2 Military Road Trail, which was interesting! My fiance and I love for it to feel like it's just us two tucked away in the woods to enjoy nature and here, even if there are a lot of people, they quickly go about their way so you spend a majority of the time quietly in the wilderness. We go every weekend.
  • Interesting area with the coal mines. We hiked to an area above one of the air outlets covered with rebar. The holes are large enough for a kid to slip their legs through and hurt themselves so be careful with them. A lot of good information on display boards as well.
  • Went there a rainy day (you will get muddy). Pleasant hike. Easy, short, about two or three miles to see the falls. Occasionally came across other hikers, but we were mostly alone. A few really gorgeous spots.
  • Pretty trails. "Dam" was about 4' tall. Woods were nice tho
  • Am amazing nature retreat so close to urban centers. Once you get into the trails you feel like you could be a 100 miles from civilization. The serenity of the woods blows away the detritus cluttering your mind. Your breathing becomes deeper and more even. This is how I decompress 3 - 4 times a week. You can just walk around and enjoy nature, you can hike at a brisk pace or go for a trail run. I do all three here and feel blessed that this is so close and accessible. When in snows the park is even beautiful. It being at a higher altitude than the cities around, it gets more snow and it stays longer.
