  • We may have gone at the wrong time of year but the area is in need of some maintenance. Most importantly, however, the trails seriously need better marking. We spent allot of time trying to figure out which path we were on. In fact!, most of the time we weren't sure if we were on a path at all. The scenery was beautiful and we thoroughly enjoyed the simple hike.
  • Our family loves going here at least every other year, and even though the price is fair it don't hurt that they have free days during summer
  • Total bummer. Maybe we just went on a bad day, but the walking trails were not well marked, not well kept, and not interesting. It was just bugs and grass. The bird houses on the way in were really cool, and the birds of prey were interesting, but the trails and treehouse (if you can even really call them that) were just not good.
  • Love it! It is so serene and peaceful there. The education program is great. I have learned so much about native Utah wildlife.
  • Beautiful scenery abounds. An excellent place for photos or to just meander and enjoy the beauty. Visit with family, children, adults or alone...you will have a great time in any situation. I have been there at all times of year and I loved each and every time.
