  • I've always loved this place. The fact that it has something for everyone. Walkers, runners, trail runners, bikers, kids, etc. It is nature combined with neighborhood at its best. You can find creatures as wild as coyote and bobcat or as tame as ground squirrel and hummingbird. You always feel safe.
  • Very nice place to go for a walk or ride a bike. Lots of nature and lots of birds to see. It really makes you feel like you've left town.
  • Hidden down in the back Bay, but nice 15-20 min browse through. Great free exhibit to stop by and see how the ecosystem and wildlife is doing in our back Bay.
  • Whether you're biking, jogging, walking yourself, walking your dog, or going on a light hike, you can never go wrong with the back bay. Great place to take pictures, and go bunny spotting. Stunning scenery as the sun sets.
  • What a great place to hike! And it is okay to take your dog! Beautiful trails.
