  • What a nice walk, even on a cool and breezy morning. The forest literally full of birds, would get quite close. The walking path reaches the lake from time to time, but definitely it is a good forest ...  more »

  • Not a good place for dogs: dogs are not allowed on trails. So the only place dogs can go is on the paved path around the lake. Parking is also somewhat limited. We had to wait in line for people to come back from their hikes. No street parking. It was a nice urban park for running or biking (if allowed?), but not what we were looking for.
  • Small but excellent state park with well maintained trails and beautiful visitor center. Nice place for a trail walk or hike.
  • Cool place to get outdoors and take kids or go on a hike.
