  • This place is a great place for a casual hike. The difficulty is low, making it a nice hike for beginners/intermediate hikers. There is an amazing view of a river/lake. The paths are well marked. Parking is decent on a typical day but limited to a small dirt parking lot. A nature center is there with restrooms available.
  • Great place to walk the dogs. We did not cover the entire area but we're able to get in a nice 1.6 mile walk that included small hills.
  • One of the best spots in Orange County. Great bird watching, miles of trails and wonderful views.
  • perfect place to walk, watch the sunset, do a little exercise, go out with your dog or next to a nice human company, I always go to this place to demimate a little relaxed and distract from the city.
  • Saw a lot of fun birds, including a road runner. Enjoyed the nature center,
