  • All we saw was trash and broken branches that needed to be picked up. There were not even any brochures in public area where they were supposed to be (about this park). A visitor from another country ...  read more »
  • We were out of the car for less than a minute trying to put buy spray on and mosquitos started swarming us. We hurried and got back in the car and left. Looks like a cool place but we dont need to be eaten alive
  • Your trail signs are seriously lacking, we set out doing the short loop and we're on the short loop trail and came upon two conflicting signs. We were totally lost in a serious thunderstorm, we could not find a correct sign, most of the walkways were flooded. We were pretty scared being lost and in a torrential downpour thunderstorm. Thank god we heard traffic on the road and walked .8 miles down the highway to the car. I recommend installing more and better signs as trail markers. Wouldn't recommend. Sorry!
  • I would have loved to actually get to see this place but we got about 100 yards in and were nearly bled dry by the mosquitoes!!! We even had on repellent on but the mosquitoes just thought it was butter because no joke at least 50 bites by the time we got back to the car and we were running!!
  • So peaceful and worth going too during the week.
  • For the main trail there's a half loop (1 mi.) Or full loop (2 mi.) - the full loop continues out past the half loop. End of Nov 2015 the full loop was covered in water - may want to bring water shoes. Nice place to stretch your legs.
