  • How to Get to the Main Trail: Each parking lot has its own little short trail through woodsy areas, the nicest one at parking lot 10. However, I've been meaning to find the actual hiking trail, and you actually have to park at the horse corral. There is a beautiful large clearing/lake surrounded by pine trees near the horse corral.
  • This hidden gem has hiking, biking, and more. It's dog friendly. We had a small cookout on one of the grills they provide at the shelter, then took a stroll around the park! I am obsessed with turtles, and they have some big ones! Bathrooms were some of the cleanest park restrooms I have been in!
  • The trails are quite long and do not have water accessible, so bring your own water. Trails go through dense shrubs and forests. There are separate trails for hiking and cycling. There is a historic area displaying remnants of the natives. The parking is very accessible and available.
  • Nice park. Good camping spots. They need more activities for kids. The bike trail is nice
  • This is a beautiful park. Best place around for picnics, cycling and walking your dog. They have great walking trails and plenty of picnic tables and charcoal grills. There is also a playground for children. There are covered pavilions that your can reserve for family get togethers or birthday parties.
